Current Scratch: Local Events, Publishing News, For the Illustrator, And A Bit Of Fun

Howdy, folks! Can you feel it? Spring is all abuzz. I hope your writing and illustrating projects are zooming with invigorating energy. If not...grab a pen / pencil and a notebook and head outdoors. Let nature inspire you!

Mark your calendars. Our next Schmooze will fall on 3-27-13 at the College Station Barnes and Noble. Bring copies (up to 5) for gentle critique at 9:30 a.m. Our Schmooze program begins at 10 a.m. This month: Kid-lit discussion boards - Why? What? How? Speaker: Molly Blaisdell, moderator for Children's Writer and Illustrator Board. See you there!
