Favorite Websites

Links to places important in my writing life:

National Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators [SCBWI] Wealth of resources for children’s writers, membership required for the greatest benefit – with my two favorite regions:

The Louisiana region meets monthly, usually in New Orleans but occasionally in Baton Rouge, an intimate critique group with occasional big events

Southern Breeze – Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and the Florida Panhandle – has big events with authors and editors a couple of times a year with smaller breakout groups here and there

International Reading Association
