The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Conference is coming up! Mark your calendars for November 3-4, 2017. This year's conference will be held at the KU Edwards campus in Overland Park, Kansas. The Kansas/Missouri region of SCBWI will host a day-long conference on Saturday the 4th with agents, authors and editors from across the nation offering keynotes and informative breakout sessions for those interested in writing/illustrating picture books, middle grade or young adult novels. Friday the 3rd will consist of portfolio and manuscript reviews, along with a regional social. Many of the speakers/reviewers do not accept unsolicited manuscripts, but paid conference attendees will be able to submit manuscripts to them after the conference which is an added benefit of attendance.
