Write2Ignite Conference - November 7-8, in Durham, NC.

Aloha from Karen Whiting!

I’m writing to ask you to let members of your critique group know about a new
conference for children’s writers. I’m attaching the flyer. It is the Write2Ignite
Conference that will take place November 7-8, in Durham, NC.

I’ll be one of the faculty members. We are limiting the number of conferees to 100 and have a great lineup of speakers. For details go to http://write2ignite.com/

Let’s Ignite the Next Generation! The news for writing for children is mixed. Many publishers indicate picture books and other books for children are not selling.

At the same time stores are indicating the one area not effected by the Internet are children’s book sales, especially picture books. Last year our nations report card showed the highest score ever in reading for children. And last year more books were sold than any other year, just not in the traditional store.

Come and find out more about how you can get published and reach today’s children.
