SCBWI Utah/Southern Idaho Revision Retreat

Just a heads up that the SCBWI Utah/S. Idaho novel revision retreat in Ashton, Idaho still has a few spots left.  I will be there, so this is your chance to meet me in person AND work on a MG or YA novel.  And if you live relatively close to me, I have room for 5 people to head up with me in my vehicle.  That is an irresistible offer, I know.  Many long hours in an enclosed traveling box. With me.  Talking the whole way.

It brings tears to your eyes, I know.

If you're interested in learning more, here are the details from the source, my ever lovable RA:
