I love being a part of the Children's Lit community--last night in Burlington, MA over 25 writers and illustrators, as well as one agent and an editor, gathered to network, share personal stories, and make friends. As some of you know, this started as a sort of experiment last February when I decided I wanted to go to a Writers Meet Up close to home--there wasn't one, so I threw it myself. This was the third event and the mostly successful as far as numbers.
It was great to see some old friends, and make some new ones. If you missed it, we'll be having another one in September. Date and location to be announced.
If you're not in our area, consider planning your own event! "If you build it, they will come!"
