OMG! The conference was awesome! I feel like I got so much crammed into my brain last week. I am so inspired and motivated, and it was wonderful to spend a week with other creative people who want to create children's books.

Our instructor for the daily 4-hour workshop was the talented and very cool Will Terry. Will taught me so much – I have never got so much valuable info at one time.

If anyone is interested in writing and/or illustrating children's books, GO TO THIS CONFERENCE – there's one every year. It's so worth it! And the two women that organize it, Carol Lynch Williams and Cheri Pray Earl, are an absolute riot!
