Oregon Coast KidLit Conference coming in July

Next summer, July 14-18,  the ever-popular Oregon Coast Children's Book Writers Workshop will be held in Oceanside, Ore. Faculty are expected to include five well-known authors, plus editor Deirdre Jones from Little, Brown; editor Laura Whitaker at Bloomsbury; and agent Rachel Orr from Prospect Agency. A number of WWA members have attended in previous years and enjoyed the experience, so check it out.

I presented a workshop at this year's conference. The small town setting inches from the ocean is the perfect spot for a writing conference. You will meet children's writers from across the country. Big publishing houses, sometimes closed to those without agents, send editors who speak on topics important to children's lit. It's a wonderful opportunity for you to submit your work to them.
