Current Scratch: Join Us, Statewide, Summer Con, Industry News, Contest, & For Fun

Howdy folks! Hope your projects are zooming right along. It's almost time to take a short (well-deserved) break! Join us next Wed. for our next Schmooze! Great information gained and always a good time had by everyone.


 Our next Schmooze on July 30 at 10:00 a.m. Alternative Avenues of Publishing at the Barnes & Noble in College Station. There are many new avenues open to children's authors. We will discuss options. Please bring any options you are aware of to share. A gentle critique will begin at 9:30 a.m. Please bring 5 copies of the WIP you'd like to have critiqued. As always, join us for lunch directly following the Schmooze.
