Conference in June (Pitch Sessions Available)
Our conference is a month away! If you haven’t signed up, you still can. We have an exciting line-up for the 2017 Arkansas SCBWI Conference June 16-17. Conference faculty includes Kait Feldmann, associate editor at Arthur A. Levine Books (Scholastic); Molly O'Neill, literary agent at Waxman Leavell Literary Agency; and Nick Thomas, editor at Arthur A. Levine Books (Scholastic).

Our consultations sold out this year. Pitch sessions are still available for picture books and novels. Also, illustrators who want a portfolio consultation, I can schedule a slot for you on Friday night. All of these are very limited, so if you are considering it, email now to reserve your spot.
