favorite quotes from scbwi conferences

The SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles is only a few weeks away. I’ve attended this conference every summer since 2009 and it never ceases to inspire me. Here are a few quotes I’ve collected over the years.

"Show up. Pay attention. Tell the truth. Let go of the outcome."  
-Karen Cushman

"Take care of your writer self." -Gennifer Choldenko

"Listen to your pages." -Libba Bray

“Be proud of what you wish for.” –Carolyn Mackler

Also, an inspiring keynote by Judy Shachner.

A few more good quotes.

And, a link to my all-time favorite workshop given by Lin Oliver and Henry Winkler called “Comedy Comes From the Heart.”

I can hardly wait for more!

Ps. If you go to the conference and spot a lady holding this swan notebook, you've found me. Please say hello!
