Step 2 of your Spring Spirit Conference Registration
Missed Step 1? Return to our SCBWI webpage to print out the conference packet to complete your registration form. The packet contains:
The design of the 2013 conference is a bit different than in the past, i.e. we have four distinct tracks running throughout the day. You do not have to follow one track for the entire day. You may choose sessions in any of the tracks to create the perfect program for your needs, but we ask that you attend the session you choose. (We use these numbers to designate the appropriate sized room.) NOTE: Some of the sessions have pre-conference homework. Read the session descriptions carefully.
Written Manuscript Critiques (by faculty members): Once again, we are offering writting manuscript critiques by members of our faculty. Each reader will choose between one and three authors for a face-to-face meeting on conference day. You will find out if you've won a face-to-face critique when you pick up your registration packet on April 6. To register for a written critique you must:
Written Synopsis Critiques (by Linda Joy Singleton): At our 2012 Spring Spirit Conference, Linda spoke about creating a winning synopsis. This year she's back to help you apply her method to your work in progress.
All manuscript and synopsis submissions are due in our post office box office by Feb. 6, 2013.
[Note: There are NO EXCEPTIONS to these deadlines. We are not responsible for mail holidays. There are absolutely no refunds if you do not comply with the above rules. If you sign up for a written manuscript or synopsis critique, you must commit to meeting the deadlines and following through. It's part of being a professional. We suggest you mail your submission EARLY!]
