It was a great weekend, and I can think of several ways to describe it: fun-filled, enlightening, stimulating, and entertaining. In this week’s blog post, I am going to leave you with pictures from some of the events and workshops I experienced.
At Friday night’s welcome, we viewed an exhibit of river flags and enjoyed an offering from emerging poet Lily Rex. The highlight of the evening was a talk and poetry reading by author/poet Wang Ping. Here are some pictures.
At the conference on Saturday, I enjoyed browsing through the bookfair and attending the sessions. Here is a picture from the bookfair.
And here are pictures from the sessions I attended:
A panel on “Historical (Re)tell: The Writing and Craft of Telling Retellings of the Historic”;
Another panel presentation on “Getting Over the Transom: Tips for litmag acceptances from ccr eds.”;
Carla Lee Suson talking about “Perfect Pitch: Developing the Phrase that Defines Your Manuscript”;
And “How to Work with an Illustrator, Self-Publish, and Promote a Children’s Book” with author James B. Dworkin and illustrator Michael Chelich.
I hope to see you at next year’s conference.
