The SCBWI conference will be held next weekend in Tulsa. There are still openings and you don't have to be a member to attend. If you are interested in writing or illustrating children's books, I highly recommend you attend this conference. It will do nothing but benefit you in many ways. For details, check out the state chapter's website: www.scbwiok.org Hope to see many authors and illustrators there.
P.S. One of the benefits is listening to editors and agents from New York City. That's a huge plus, especially if you are attempting to have something published.
