I do not have the words to express how grateful I am to the Hairston family and the Martha Weston Grant Committee for giving me the opportunity to attend this conference.  It was absolutely amazing.  I’m writing an article about it for the SCBWI Canada West newsletter and will share other tidbits as I continue to absorb all I learned  and experienced.  I’m sure the words will come to me eventually – I am a writer after all!
