Ozark Writers & Illustrators:
The deadline for submitting a first page for critique at the Ozark Writers and Illustrators for Children [including YA] is June 12th. The conference is July 11th (Saturday) at the Lebanon-Laclede County library this year. For more info, including a downloadable registration form, go to www.owaic.org. Great conference for writers - even if not specializing in children's writing. Great for illustrators, too.
On July 10th, the library is hosting an Author Day/Book fair for writers of all ages and genres [except things not suitable for public library] from noon to 5 - no charge, but need to reserve a table by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
