Registration is now closed. See you there!
This year instead of our usual large conference, we will be hosting a more intimate retreat.
The retreat will be held October 4-6 at the Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center in Waxahachie. The retreat will host 3 faculty members – one agent, one editor, and one art director. The cost will be $300 person which includes 5 meals and two nights at the lodge on site. Lodging will be two people per room.
Attendees will be divided into 3 tracks (picture book, novel – which includes chapter book, middle grade, and young adult, and illustrator) with only 20 people per track. Instead of lectures, attendees will participate in workshops lead by faculty members.The more intimate nature of the retreat allows for each attendee to have the space to fully concentrate on their craft under the guidance of our fabulous faculty and have an opportunity to work away from the distractions of everyday life.
Carter Hasegawa, editor at Candlewick Press will be the facilitator for the Picture Book Track.
Ann Rose, agent at Prospect Literary will be the facilitator for the Novel Track.
Katrina Damkoehler, Art Director with Random House will be the facilitator for the Illustrator Track.
Instead of lectures, attendees will participate in workshops lead by faculty members.
