A. E. Conran on faculty of the Book Passage YA and MG Writers' Conference: July 16 and 17

Organized by Tiffany Jimenez at Book Passage, this conference was packed full of amazing presentations from the Keynote with Newbery Honor author Gennifer Choldenko, to Ying Compostine's no-holds-barred presentation on writing award-winning novels. I had a fantastic time presenting on Bravery in Middle Grade Fiction, (character and authorial) and sharing some of my experiences promoting a book published by a small press on an author panel with Esther Erhlich, Nest, Jennifer Lynn Alvarez, Guardian Herd series, and Ying Compostine, Revolution is not a Dinner Party.  Thank you Tiffany for a fabulous conference!
