SCBWI LA Conference--A Family Affair

I brought my son Charlie, an aspiring writer, with me to the national SCBWI conference in Century City last Saturday. He loved it. We split up for breakout sessions. He says that Carolyn Mackler's workshop on building character was entertaining and informative. I shared my info with him on what Hyperion/Disney is looking for to fill holes on their list. At lunch I introduced him to our Los Angeles RAs, Edie and Sara, who encouraged him to attend the writer's retreat in September.

I'm excited that Charlie wants to write fiction. He's good, I think. (And I promise that's not just because I'm his mom.) Who knows? Maybe we'll do the NY conference next. He's great company.
