6. Keynote: Dancing Naked on the Floor - How to Say Yes to the Writerly Life

It's not every day that you get to listen to a closing keynote by the guy who JUST WON THE NEWBERY!

But that's how this 2015 conference came to a close, with a rousing talk by the one and only Kwame Alexander, author of 18 books including CROSSOVER, which the New York Times called "a beautifully measured novel"and the Newbery committee agreed.

His talk started with a standing ovation from the excited crowd, and it's no wonder.

Kwame has contributed hugely to the world of children's literature. In addition to all of his beautiful books, he created the Book-in-a-Day literacy program that's generated more than 3,000 student authors at 69 schools across the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.

He started off with a story about how he courted his wife.

"I wrote her a poem a day for the first year." He even read us some of that poetry, which no doubt made more than one of us fall in love with him just a little bit. And he showed us what an incredible storyteller he is, talking about his family, about how he came to give this talk today, and even about the suit he stood onstage in.

When he was starting out, he took himself on a 30-city tour to sell a book of poetry (including in a church!), and found a job in a public school working that paid $25 an hour for working as a poet—but only for an hour a day.

In being a parent and in working with students, he realized he could write love poems for teenagers.

He wrote a book of funny, emotional, and sad poetry for kids, which he read all around the country including in a juvenile detention facility. No one wanted it, so he published it himself and got a starred review. He also sold 13,000 copies in the first year.

"This writing life is not just sitting in your room with a pencil and paper. It's about getting out in the world and having something to write about," he told us.

But you also have to sell it and bring it to the world. "It's not just about writing and being an artist. You have to master the business side of writing."


His Book in a Day program has turned into something incredible, traveling around the country and the world teaching kids to write poetry, and working with other writers at a fellowship he created after his application to one was turned down. This is part of his philosophy—not letting other people's "nos" define his yes.


It was an incredible talk: hilarious, heartfelt, and full of wisdom and truth. It's hard to think of a better way to end a conference—or turn the next page in our careers as writers and illustrators. And yes, we gave him a standing ovation at the end as well.

7. Brenda Bowen - Agents' Panel - Charting Your Career Path

To use Lin Oliver's words, Brenda Bowen is a "guiding light" in our industry.


She has headed up the children's book division of several publishing companies, including Simon & Schuster. A few years back, Brenda became an agent with Greenburger Associates. Today, her clients include Samantha Berger, Tim Federle, Hilary Knight, Mike Curato, and many, many more.

But that's not all! Brenda has written picture books and novels under the name Margaret McNamara, and she's also the author of a novel for adults coming out in June called ENCHANTED AUGUST. So, yes. She's pretty much a luminary in every way.

She moderated the agents' panel, asking questions such as these:
  • Do agents actually help authors and artists with their career paths? Or do you just make deals? 
  • How do you get an illustrator's work in front of people? 
  • How do agents feel about writers who write across multiple genres? 
To find out the answers, check out recaps of Barry Goldblatt's comments, Jennifer Laughran's comments, and Tina Wexler's comments.

9. Jennifer Laughran: Agents Panel

Jennifer Laughran is a senior agent at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. She joined ABLA in 2007 after many years as a buyer and event coordinator for an independent bookstore. Jenn is always on the lookout for sparkling YA and middle grade fiction with unusual and unforgettable characters and vivid settings; the common thread in all her favorite stories is an offbeat world-view. She loves funny books, thrilling books, romantic books, books that make her cry, and all-around un-put-downable books.

Jennifer Laughran on the big screen - and on the Agents Panel


Jennifer talks about the scope of her agenting, from big picture to deals to day-to-day author/illustrator care. A few highlights:

She goes into detail about the ways she helps her illustrator clients get their work in front of art directors and agents. Hint: make sure you have a good website with an online portfolio, showing a broad range of styles, action, movement, kid characters...

In fielding a question about how she feels about clients who want to write in two different genres, Jennifer says it depends: "Are you good at both?" She cites her client Kate Messner's range of titles, genres and categories and how they strategize Kate's releases with a color-coded calendar! (p.s. - she's sold 30 books for Kate!)

Query letters: Long enough to cover what she needs to know, but short enough to intrigue her.

On success: "George" is a middle-grade debut novel by Alex Gino that Jennifer sold overnight to Scholastic. They got it Monday evening and made an offer Tuesday morning. It's being talked about as an overnight success. Except for the eight years Alex spent writing it. And the additional year the author worked with Jennifer on the book before it was sent out on submission. So it's really "a decades-long success."

Jennifer represents a lot of established authors and also a lot of debut authors. She looks out at the room of over 1,000 authors and illustrators and tells us she's always looking for new people, and hopes some of her future clients are in the room.

10. Barry Goldblatt: Agents' Panel

Barry Goldblatt is a real piece of work. But one of my most favorite pieces of work! He's an agent at Barry Goldblatt Literary, which is such a strange coincidence—since it's a different Barry Goldblatt that started the company in 2000. That Barry is now in the witness protection program, so we are left with only this Barry, but he's way more fun than that other Barry. Case in point—his fun, good news to share about the last client he signed:

Barry tells us of reading The Carnival at Bray after the Morris committee recognized it, signing Jessie Ann Foley on a Saturday morning, and finding out the following day that it was awarded a Printz Honor.

"You never know how it's going to happen, but we're always looking."

Brenda: Do you help shape career paths? Or just make deals.

BarBar: There's such a wide swath of agent working styles. But much of what we spend our time on is planning out career moves and what the next step is. We talk about what makes the most sense to work on next if they have a lot of ideas. For me as an agent, it's always big picture.

If everything goes right, we're working together for 40 or 50 years.

This is a 24/7 job. It doesn't turn off.

Brenda: A lot of conference talks are about following your bliss and writing what you know, what you want to write. But if people need to pay their heating bill, shouldn't they be concerned with trying to write something marketable?

BarBar: Get a job. This is not something you get into with the intention of supporting your family on. If that's what you're hoping to start out as. This is not an easy place to make a living. Even after you've sold a book, all of you know how many books are on shelves, websites, catalogs, it's a big gamble.

I support this industry at every opportunity, I buy books like a crazy person. But it's still really hard. If you've got a trust fund and don't have kids to worry about, sure, you'll be okay.

Brenda: How do you manage the business of books for an author for the year?

BarBar: It's a constant conversation. Holly Black had a five-year plan form and I've used that with other clients going forward, they fill it out with various goal ideas. It's a good thing to have in my folder, we don't always look at it every year, but we never sit down and go over financial goals or anything like that.

Brenda: How on earth do I stand out from a crowd as an unpublished author?

BarBar: Bottom line, and I know you don't want to hear this again, it's: Make it brilliant.

11. Tina Wexler: Agents' Panel: Charting Your Career Path

Tina Wexler is an agent in the Literary Department of ICM Partners. She represents middle grade and young adult fiction, as well as the occasional picture book.

Tina loves being able to do passion projects that pay off.

Tina says it's in the best interest of her clients to think well beyond the book and to think about the client's career.

A big part of Tina's job is not only to work with her clients and read queries, but to read the books her colleagues are buying, as well as staying in touch with their wants and needs.

"You're writing with your heart, writing for your passion. If you are writing to pay a bill, that's not writing that's going to sell. We can see your heart on the page and it's quantifiably better because there's passion."

On how to stand out from the crowd:
It's great when you can get a little bit of the voice of your story into your query. Barry Goldblatt helps to clarify that this does not mean to write the query in the voice of your character.

If you are using social media as a part of connecting to a bigger conversation that's great. If you're using it to avoid work then it's not helpful. If you are using up time to compare yourself to others, it will make you crazy and get in the way doing your work.

14. James Dashner: Writing Commercial Fiction

 James Dashner is the author of the Maze Runner, recently released as a film by Twentieth Century Fox. His other works include The Eye of Minds and The 13th Reality.

A favorite thing before being published was going to conferences like this one to hear other writers' stories.

James has always loved stories, and writing them, even though they were really bad. He also read like crazy: Charlotte's Web, Hardy Boys, James and the Giant Peach. James studied accounting in college, but he still dreamed of being a writer and he wrote his first novel.

A small publisher published his first books and because of them he was able to connect with writers and agents. He then wrote the Maze Runner and it was rejected across the board. But he didn't quit. He went on to write The 13th Reality, again to a small publisher. After, he took out the Maze Runner again, rewrote it, and sent it to his now agent. It sold!

The Maze Runner has now been published in many foreign markets, and Twentieth Century Fox made the movie.

James has a stack of 30 or 40 rejections, most belonging to the Maze Runner. His successes are a combination of sticking with it, not giving up, but he admits he also had some really lucky breaks. If you quit you don't give yourself the chance to get those lucky breaks.

"You have no idea how thankful I am every day that I didn't give up."

15. Laura Vaccaro Seeger: The Making of a Picture Book


Laura shows us a slide of all the books she's done, and how happy she is to have done them all with her editor and now friend, Neal Porter.

It all starts with journals: a place for doodles and stream of consciousness thinking. Laura numbers all of her pages in a journal and makes a table of contents for remembering those fleeting good ideas—brilliant!

A lot of times, one book will inform and shape your next book, especially for concept books. Laura loves exploring opposites. For the hidden alphabet, she used negative space to force the reader to read the shapes of the letters, using die-cut shapes to do that, led to Lemons are Not Red, where die-cut shapes force you to think about why a certain thing is not a certain color, and to wonder what the page turn will reveal as the correct answer.


Even when making a concept book, there's always story. Whenever you can add story to something that's ostensibly just conceptual, it adds another layer to everything and makes the book better.


Sometimes you get an idea you believe in, but you get to a point when you're working on it where you think it can't work and you want to give up. Laura says you have to trust your first instinct and carry on.

How Laura built the characters for Dog and Bear: She started with a list of their character traits, it turns out she is a lot like Dog, and Neal Porter is a lot like Bear.

It makes the writing process easier and the story more authentic when you know your characters well.

It's so fun to watch Laura illustrate the power of prediction and page turn in a picture book by reading us a snippet of Dog and Bear: Tricks and Treats and One Boy.

Next she shows us a screenshot of a manuscript with all of it's revision notes (there are many). Laura understands how attached artists get to their art, but, she reminds us, we have to be willing to let go of a lot of stuff.

Make very, very very rough storyboards because PACING IS EVERYTHING. Do character design explorations, then figure out the essence of your book.

For BULLY, after doing all of her character design studies, Laura realized the essence of her book was that the main character was rough around the edges, and that all of her existing art supplies were too soft. Laura ended up inking all of the art in BULLY with a stick she found in her yard.


Laura also uses BULLY to illustrate how you can control how a picture book is read by varying the size of your type. So much fun!

Laura shows us the evolution of GREEN, which began in an email from Neal in 2007 giving Laura the title GREEN until its publication in 2012 and subsequent Caldecott Honor in 2013.

17. Remembering Bernice "Bee" Cullinan

Cautioning us that a lot of what we've lost is the institutional memory of children's books, Jane Yolen asks us to remember Bernice "Bee" Cullinan, who was past president of ILA (International Literacy Association) and began Wordsong at Boyds Mills Press - which was the only dedicated poetry line in children's books.

Bernice passed away earlier this month. You can find out more about Bernice in this tribute article here.

19. Kami Garcia: The Truth About Writing

Kami Garcia is the New York Times best-selling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures & Dangerous Creatures novels and the author of the instant New York Times bestseller and Bram Stroker nominated novel Unbreakable and the sequel Unmarked, in the Legion Series.

SCBWI was the first professional conference she ever attended.

Kami became a writer accidentally. During a fantasy-book club meeting with her students, they shared what they wanted in a book. Kami then discussed
 this her friend, Margaret Stohl, over tacos, and they brainstormed the story. With a dare, and interested teens pushing them along, they finished the story.

The coauthors didn't think of it as a book, they thought of it as a story. They planned to put it up online for people to read. Free.

Thankfully the two received some advice to put on the brakes, and ended up with some help along the way. Unexpectedly, they had an agent, Beautiful Creatures was going to auction, and many crazy successes followed.

So often with books, it's not just having a good book, it's timing, being in the right place at the right time.

The reason it worked? Kami believes she and her coauthor would never have written the book if they wrote it to be published. That gave them the freedom to break a lot of rules. And they did.

Writing her own book proved more difficult because now she was writing for money.

What Kami knew was that finding the right book at the right time can save a life. It was the Outsiders for her.

As Kami works on her next book, she doesn't know if it's what her publisher or editor will like or want, but she hope that it might be that right book for a reader.

20. Thrillers and Mysteries with Ben Rosenthal

Ben Rosenthal, senior editor at Katherine Tegen Books/Harper Collins is standing right behind you!! With a knife!!!

Oh, no, he's here at the conference, standing in front of us, and that's just a bottle of water.

Ben provides an awesome take home handout about the seven essentials you need to make kickass mysteries and/or thrillers. I'm only sharing two, because they are so good and dense and meaty (like a dead body):




Suspense and Plot Twists


  • Suspense is about delay, creating the sense that the climax is coming while not allowing the reader to skip ahead to find out what happens.
  • Every element in the lead-in passage should heighten the reader's anticipation while the language itself maintains its grip on the reader. Use careful, vivid description, appealing to the reader's emotions invested in your characters.
  • Plot twist! A good twist is something that not only pulls the rug out from under the reader, but your characters, too.
  • Reverse character character motives: The most organic path to achieving a good plot twist.
Ben provides some excellent writing exercises about how to find or create your plot twist. He recommends writing a first draft of your story and then looking at how you can add in a twisty element. Ben said the nail in the coffin to acquire Code Name Komiko was its plot twist at the end of the book, so check that out.



Dialogue


  • Dialogue tells the truth, so it should sound like the truth. Read dialogue aloud to see if it sounds natural.
  • Resist the urger to explain. Let dialogue speak for itself. If the words in your dialogue are not conveying the correct emotions or ideas, don't explain. Fix the dialogue.
  • Turn the volume up on your dialogue. Make it feel larger than life to match your characters.


Ben asks if we've ever been talking to someone, and hours later, come up with the perfect comeback. Turned up dialogue is the perfect comeback, line after line. He mentions Three Times Lucky as an example of great dialogue.

22. The LGBTQ Q&A

With conference faculty guest agent Tina Wexler, agent Jennifer Laughran, Art Director and Author Laurent Linn, Best-Selling and Award-Winning Author Jane Yolen, editor Emma Dryden and editor and publisher Arthur A. Levine, our group of more than forty attendees gathered to share and talk about  writing and illustrating LGBTQ characters and themes in works for children and teens.

In moments ranging from hilarious to somber,  topics covered included picture book art notes (dos and don'ts), gender non-conformity, gender challenges in the English language, and the urgent need for more books with LGBTQ diversity.

At one point, an ally voiced a concern about writing from a queer perspective, and the consensus was to not hold back about writing from other points of view (outside your own.) To do your homework, to run it by people who are members of that community...

Arthur: "I urge you to not be self-conscious"

Jane: "In terms of getting it right. In terms of getting the feelings right."

It was a great conversation and the room was filled with a sense of warmth and community. We sat in a circle, each person sharing their name and what they're working on, with our conference faculty (and myself) chiming in with thoughts, advice and insights.

Once the session ended, many participants stayed to exchange contact information and mingle. The pictures are from that part of the evening:




I was honored to host - my thanks and appreciation to the panel and all the attendees!
