Networking is important. And can be fun too. Make new friends, and meet like minded people.
I know we writers tend to be a little nervous away from our keyboards, but if you're in the greater Boston/Eastern/Central Massachusetts area, we'll be meeting at Paparazzi in Burlington, MA at 7:30 on June 21. I'd love to see you there! Ping me @KristineAsselin or krisasselin (at) yahoo (dot) com. Anyone interested in children's books is welcome--writers, illustrators, bloggers, librarians, agents, editors, anyone!
I'm working on putting together a schedule so people can plan ahead. Stay tuned for that. And let me know if you have any suggestion for locations.
