January 2010 ended on a terrific note with my attendance at the NY SCBWI Winter Conference at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in NYC. The speakers and lectures were inspiring and I invite you to visit my blog http://www.donna-mcdine.blogspot.com/ Monday, February 8th when I share my experiences from the world wind weekend.
To add to the excitement I met up with two of my online critique partners, Lori Calabrese and Stephanie Hoina. We first met at the Eastern SCBWI conference back in 2007 and we were delighted to see in each other in person for the first time since our initial meeting. I extend an invitation to you all to come back on Wednesday, February 9th when I share with you my experiences with these two talented women at http://ww.donna-mcdine.blogspot.com/.
In celebration of Black History Month, I again invite you to join me at my other blog http://www.thegoldenpathway.blogspot.com/ throughout the month of February. Nancy Sanders will be my guest author on February 10th where she discusses her new release, America’s Black Founders: Revolutionary Heroes and Early Leaders. I will also feature three-time Newberry Honor winner, author, Jacqueline Woodson with a book review of Show Way and excerpts from her luncheon keynote speech at the NY SCBWI Winter Conference on February 17th and 24th, respectfully.
