Meetings and Intensives

And now the pre-conference gatherings. The hotel has once again decorated the statues. Last year it was Dr. Seuss and this year – Harry Potter. They even had the scarf (that was added after this photo was snapped). Thursday was a time for the Regional Team members to gather and chat about all things SCBWI, from […]
