Last night, some 20 or so SCBWI Western Washington writers and illustrators (of the 40 known to be here) took a break from the SCBWI Summer Conference to gather for a couple of hours between the bar and the pool. We met fellows from the Oregon and Inland Empire regions and chatted about the conference's great kick-offs by Jon Sczieska and M.T. Anderson and all sorts of other things, too. Among other good stuff, we gave so-good-to-see-you-again hugs to Kjersten Anna Hayes and tried to lure mystic members to our summer picnic on August 11.
Couldn't make it? Follow the hot stuff with Team Blog. We'll try to put a few more highlights here over the next few days, too!
