Come Join The Scribbler’s Symposium!
It’s been five years since we launched Little Lamb Books. And, over the past five years, we have met some amazing people in the publishing industry. But, we noticed that there was something missing.
Out of all the conferences and conventions we’ve gone to, none were specifically for writers of children’s books. Most of the ones we’ve attended have been for a variety of authors, but rarely has there been a specific track for children’s writers.
Now, this doesn’t mean there aren’t some out there. However, we just felt like the content we were looking for was missing. We wanted to create a positive environment that shared practical and personal information for children’s writers, including writers of faith, to be able to put into action immediately. We wanted to invite well-know speakers along with new and emerging voices to give a variety of perspective on everything from the writing process to working with editors to book design to marketing a title. We wanted to share tangible and useful skills, give time for questions, and create a space for authors to network and ask questions they might not be comfortable asking elsewhere – whether published or waiting to be published.
And, despite this crazy, unpredictable year, we are excited to announce that this goal to open a new conference for children’s and young adult writers is coming to fruition!
We are pleased to be co-sponsoring, along with Warren Publishing, the all-new Scribbler’s Symposium, a two-day online writing conference for writers of children’s books. Whether you write for elementary readers or tween and teens, you are invited to join us on November 18-19 from 8am to 8pm for over 15 speakers in 20-plus sessions covering everything from School Visits to the Top Ten Characteristics of a Bestselling Book to Growing Your Email List. Along with our general sessions, we’re also hosting not one, but TWO amazing keynote speakers: YA novelist Sara Ella, author of Coral (HarperCollins/Thomas Nelson) and The Unblemished Series (HarperCollins Christian Publishing/Thomas Nelson); and Michelle Medlock Adams, New York Times bestselling ghostwriter and bestselling author of more than ninety books, with nearly 4 million copies sold. Her latest title, I Love You Bigger Than the Sky, won first place in the board book category in the 2020 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards
Of course, no conference is complete without mixers for attendees to meet and greet, so Scribbler’s Symposium is including a few opportunities for interaction through virtual mixers and online break-out sessions for networking and meeting other authors from across the country. It’s going to be amazing, and we are looking forward to making connections and sharing screens with everyone who attends.
Registration is open and tickets start at $119 and includes an extra 30 days with the session recordings. Ticket price will go up to $139 on November 2 and up to $159 on November 16, so you need to mark your calendar, set aside time to participate, and go to www.thescribblerssymposium.com to save your spot!
We are grateful to bring this conference opportunity to writers and we hope that this is just the beginning of a great event that we can share year after year.
