This unique and exciting conference covers all aspects of creating books for children, from developing ideas to honing your skills to finding a publisher. Conference participants will spend the weekend writing, illustrating, workshopping, networking, and perfecting their craft. Our celebrated faculty of award-winning authors, illustrators, agents, and editors will offer inspiration and guidance in a collegial and intimate setting. Participants will work closely with other writers and illustrators in a particular area of emphasis, such as writing for picture books or illustration; and have the opportunity to get feedback from experts in a workshop setting. Writing sessions will be offered where participants can workshop something they have been working on in a group with a faculty facilitator. The writing sessions will focus on craft, style and structure. Expert panels feature topics of common interest, such as finding an agent, how to work with your editor, marketing and promotion, and more. There will be many opportunities for faculty and participants to talk, laugh, and exchange ideas in workshops, lunches, and at evening events.

Open to new, established and aspiring writers and illustrators, the conference takes place in beautiful Marin County, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco and adjacent to Northern California’s wine country.
