As of late, I’ve officially become the new Co-Regional Advisor for our beloved SCBWI Nevada region. When I originally joined the SCBWI, Suzy Williams and Ellen Hopkins ran our region and have given me big shoes to fill. Cynthia Mun, my partner in Co-Regional Advisor crime, lives in Las Vegas while I’m in Reno, and we’re super excited to have each other in this new venture.
I not only have a passion for writing, but helping writers as well, so taking on this new role is a dream for me.
I’ve been a busy bee getting everything in order for our eighth annual SCBWI Nevada Mentor Program, and so far there’s a wonderful line up of authors, and industry professionals who’ve signed on. I’m really looking forward to lifting the veil on our 2015/2016 faculty this April.
If you’re a part of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators, I hope to meet you at an event soon, or just look forward to hearing from you by email, or social media—if you’re interested in anything our region has going on, or have simple questions, please don’t hesitate to email me.
We are dedicated to listening to your ideas and to bringing you the best support and programming that we can. Our region is as strong as our volunteers and members make it. Please feel free to contact us with questions, ideas, or to volunteer. You are warmly welcomed to join us at our Nevada SCBWI events no matter where you live. We hope to see you soon! – Our SCBWI Nevada Mission Statement
