Upcoming Writing Events

Every year, I advocate for the Big Sur Writing Workshop, one of the best in the United States. I’m biased because I used to work with the fabulous agents of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency and was on faculty for several years. However, I truly believe in this intensive, hands-on, close-knit, workshop model for a conference, and every writers needs to experience it at least once. This spring’s offering is March 7th to 9th in Seaside, California. Learn more about it and register here.

If you’re based in the Midwest, you will likely have heard of the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. Their depth and breadth of writing programming is quite impressive, and the events are put on by a diverse and interesting group of writing and publishing professionals, called “Teaching Artists” at the Loft. This spring, they’re doing their annual Children’s and Young Adult Literature Conference on April 26th and 27th in downtown Minneapolis. Details have yet to be posted but I’ll be speaking about pitches and queries that weekend, which I’m really excited about. Keep an eye on this page for more information.

    I’m glad you’re still teaching even though you’re not an agent anymore 🙂

    My name is Christian Fischer, a senior writing student at Southern New Hampshire University. We used “Create Your Writer Platform” as a textbook for our New Media Publishing course, and you were an author case study. I am impressed with your professionalism and knowledge in the children’s book industry, and your drive toward success. I also want to become a children’s writer, particularly for the middle grade and young adult market.

    Wish I was close enough – I’d love to be able to do any kind of in-person event or workshop. Not a lot going on here (in Israel) for writers in English!
