wHeRe: The Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles CA

wHy: We are five very fortunate authors for children and young adults who have been generously mentored, guided and supported by a host of talented individuals. We can't think of a better way to thank them than by easing the way for others. The National Conference is a game-changer.

hOw: To enter, write at least one but no more than three haiku telling us why we should pick you for this year's conference. (A haiku is a three-line poem, featuring a total of 17 syllables: 5 in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 again in the third.) Have some fun with this!

Please feel free to share this info with your SCBWI buddies everywhere.
Best of luck and fairy dust to you all!

"I would rather have the
two-hundred and fifty-six
imperfect books that mark the vectors of my journey through my art form than to have one perfect book that marks nothing
