I’ll be here.  Will you?  Northern Ohio SCBWI puts on a fantastic conference.  Say hello if you see me!

Our 2017 Northern Ohio Regional Conference, “Blazing a Trail: Your Creative Journey,” will be held on September 15-16 at the conference center at Lorain County Community College.

Join fellow travelers for a spectacular sendoff on your creative journey at this year’s conference! To guide you on your journey, we’ve lined up an award-winning faculty including editors, agents, an art director, and many talented authors and illustrators.

We will again be offering intensives Friday afternoon as well as critiques, an illustrator showcase, calendar contest, book basket, and publication recognition.
