I am seriously so incredibly blown away by the amazing response we've had to the Black Voices Matter fundraising event. Thank you to EVERYONE who has made this possible. Donors, purchasers, retweeters, you're all amazing. Because we've raised over $1200, we are SO very close to being able to send all of the applicants to the SCBWI Summer Spectacular.
So with that in mind, I reached out to the ever-amazing Kaitlyn Sanchez with my newest crazy idea. She is always such a gem and was happy to jump on board. I'm thrilled to announced the webinar "How to Stand Out in the Query Trenches" with Agent Kaitlyn Sanchez.
This will help us raise those last few funds to get all of these amazing Black Authors and Illustrators to the conference. AND it's an amazing chance to sit down with an agent and hear her tips and tricks for really making those queries shine. The Webinar will be 30 min of instruction followed by 30 min of Q&A. I'm trying hard to keep this webinar very affordable while still raising the funds we need to amplify Black voices. Tickets are $25. But because we know that funds are tight Kaitlyn came up with the amazing idea of providing 3 scholarships to the webinar. And like her wonderful clients Margaret Aitken and Heather Bell have said, "being a good writer shouldn't depend on your bank balance," I was instantly on board. Like Kaitlyn, I was able to complete my undergrad on scholarship. And my husband even attended law school on scholarship! So we have been so blessed by scholarship, I'm always happy to see chances to pay it forward. Thanks for the great idea, Kaitlyn! You can apply for one HERE.
We would love to fill the seats in this class. We hope you can join us and we are SO grateful again for your generosity in making this fundraiser such a huge success. You can register for the webinar here:
Can't wait to "meet" you all on July 14th via zoom!
