Just for fun, I dug around in the SCBWI-MI archives. Presenting Throwback Thursday...
2011 fall conference on Mackinac Island. Ahhh... Sadly, I will not be packing my bags for the return trip to Mackinac this weekend, but here are some flashback photos from fun-filled conferences over the years.
Karaoke Queen: Catherine Bieberich. Ask her to sing Devo's Whip It, then watch her friends leap to the dance floor. (I'm not allowed to share those photos.)
That's me! Photo-op with a brilliant pink-haired author. Laini Taylor is my hero. (Her husband is pretty cool and talented, too.)
Notice the theme? It's always Halloween at SCBWI conferences. Yes, that's the same Monica Harris in all three pics. Along with Leslie Helakoski, Vicky Lorencen, Jody Lamb, and Sarah Perry.
Ahem... Add your own caption here. Ryan Hipp with Jay Asher and Julie Chase.
The SCBWI-MI 2014 - 2015 mentorship winner will be announced at the fall conference on Mackinac Island this weekend. See the full listing of previous mentors and mentorship recipients on the SCBWI-MI website.
I know there are more flashback gems hiding out there - send them to me at kristinbartleylenz AT gmail DOT com. Safe traveling to all the conference-goers, and take pictures!
