Returned on Sunday night from a very busy weekend in Fitchburg, MA where NESCBWI held their 2011 regional conference. So many great keynote speakers, Jane Yolen, Tomie dePaola, Lin Oliver, Steven Mooser and Harold Underdown to inspire and motivate. So many great workshops that gave me tools to bring my written work and online presence to the next level. I had a very helpful portfolio review with Art Director, Ann Bobco, who gave me some ideas on how to move my work forward.
I enjoyed watching "The Library of the Mind" once again. It didn't lose any impact in its second viewing. The best part of the conference was the networking with new people and spending time with my RISD friends, who did a great job representing the RISD program by winning all sorts of awards at the poster contest.
I'm looking forward to attending Encore in the fall and the conference next spring in Springfield!
