Day 3 and the Urban Wolf (aka Andrea Zuill) says, “Goodbye ’til next year” from SCBWI Summer Conference 2013:
Our Urban Wolf is asleep in his dog bed, wiped out after three days of fun and information. For more on the SCBWI LA Conference 2013, check out the official SCBWCI blog. Thank you to Homer/Andrea for great reporting. And now the real work begins…
P.S. From the editor (Chick Hen): Congratulations to all the Golden Kite nominees and awardees as well as Mo Willems for the Sid Fleischman Humor Award. A special hurrah! to Alexis O’Neill for Member of the Year. And, too, to the illustrator mentees! (Homer is an alum…).
