Call for workshop leaders for the May 18-19, 2012 SCBWI Oregon Conference!

We are looking for authors and illustrators who are interested in conducting a workshop, or maybe two, at our upcoming spring event. Here are the opportunities:

Friday May 18: Two-hour intensive workshop on craft (writing or illustrating). This session is broken up into presentation and working/sharing time.

Saturday May 19: One-hour workshop on topic of your choice, from beginning to advanced in nonfiction, picture books, MG, YA, magazine writing, etc.

Two authors chosen for Friday will also be paid to contribute to the WOW session that day.

We are offering: free attendance to both days and you will only work one; $50 per session; $35 per individual critique if you are willing to do those; book sales opportunity with our 20% fee waived; Faculty dinner on Saturday evening; One year membership in the SCBWI.

Please send your topic/s proposal with a brief description along with your experience as a workshop leader to:

Judi Gardiner,

While you may not be chosen for the 2012 event, your information will be filed for future events here in Oregon. We hope many of you step up, as we have expanded the agenda and want to include a variety of voices this year!

Deadline: November 1, 2011

Hope to hear from you,
Judi and Robin, conference organizers
