I attended the NJ SCBWI Picture Book Word Count Smack Down Workshop with Ame Dyckman in Princeton, NJ yesterday!
In addition to being a super-talented author, Ame is one of the funnest, most thorough, creative and helpful presenters I've ever heard (plus a SUPER-nice person))!! If you ever have a chance to meet her or hear her speak, don't miss it! Better yet, buy her books (or check them out from the library! :)
Also present was the ever-wonderful and uber-talented illustrator, entrepreneur, and NJ Chapter Regional Advisor, Leeza Hernandez. Her readings of the participant's PB stories made everything sound good!!
