INVOLVEMENT

I joined Julie Hedlund's 12x12 in 2019. Through this organization, I've attended dozens of webinars from industry professionals, created lasting author relationships, and found answers to countless craft related questions.

SCBWI
The SCBWI was the perfect way to launch my writing career. Along with the wonderful writing opportunities this organization provided, it offered me face-to-face networking at regional conferences. I learned how to approach agents/editors tactfully while getting a feel of what they're looking for.
