Agent News and Contests
*I was lucky enough to win a scholarship to this weekend's conference put on by the Rocky Mountain Chapter of SCBWI, so I may be a bit late commenting on everyone's posts for the next couple of days. If you aren't a member of SCBWI and you write picture books, middle grade, or young adult fiction/non-fiction, please check it out. It's a great organization that offers lots of support to writers, both aspiring and published!
And guess what? I get to hear Adam Rex speak! He wrote Fat Vampire (among other books~ picture books too!), which I finished reading last night. If you think you know vampires, give this book a try. Seriously :)
Okay, okay, on with the show.
Kate McKean of Howard Morhaim Literary is now open to queries!
