I am very excited about the June 18-22, 2012, Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Conference in Sandy, Utah. This year WIFYR is offering its first annual fellowship of $1000! For all children's authors seeking to be published and/or improve their work, Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers is the conference not to be missed. This year the five-day conference offers nine morning workshops for the chance to get your manuscript critiqued by an experience author/illustrator/ editor faculty and afternoon classes. http://www.wifyr. com/ Check it out and register on line! This year the conference is sponsoring it's first-annual Writing Contest and Scholarship. Don't miss you chance at a $1,000 AWARD!!!! http://www.wifyr. com/blog/ 2012/03/09/ 1rst-annual- wifyr-writing- competition- and-fellowship- award/ " You know you want to register!
