 The deadline to apply is March 30, so apply today. Don’t forget to share with your friends, too!

Saturday, May 18th
 will be a full day of breakouts, keynote speakers, and panels. We are delighted to welcome Raúl Colón, Nisi Shawl, and Corinna Luyken as keynote speakers, plus a great line up of agents, editors and art directors who will be sharing their knowledge with you throughout the day. 

How to Apply
To apply, send a one-page artist statement (as a Word doc or PDF) that describes your work and what attending the conference would mean to you to wwa-ra@scbwi.orgno later than March 30. Be sure to include the following information:
§Full name
