WIFYR & Scholarship opportunity!


Some information about the conference from their website
Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers is for anyone who is seriously interested in publishing books for children and teens. If this is a passing interest, you may not want to invest the 40 + hours this conference takes. But if you really want to publish, there will be people here who will be able to help you get the best work possible in the time allotted.
Many people find this conference to be a life-changing experience as far as their career as writers or illustrators. It's a long, hard week that attendees love. In fact, we have many return attendees--almost 50 % of the people who come have been here more than once.
