#NJSCBWI15: A Conference in Pictures

This past weekend, the Nerdy Chicks met up in Princeton, NJ for the 2015 New Jersey SCBWI Conference, and it was wonderful from start to finish. Here are some of the moments we captured:


Kicking off with lunch in Princeton with Tara Lazar, Kelly Calabrese, Marcie Colleen, and Tammi Sauer.

This was not at the conference itself, but we did stop traffic to take a photo of this mailbox.


The conference itself was too much fun to do much more than live in the moment. But here are some more memories:

If you want to learn how to write children’s literature and hang out with some truly wonderful people, we can’t recommend this conference enough. Hope to see you next year!

    I do NOT know how I missed this post! I mean, I know I missed months of blog posts all over the blogosphere, due to nonsense I’ve had to deal with in my life, but do NOT want to miss stuff like this ๐Ÿ™‚ It IS the best conference anywhere (imo ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and love getting to see you there, too! Great pics! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
