Austin SCBWI Holiday Fun!




In the spirit of the seasons, our local Austin SCBWI chapter held its annual holiday social this past week at Opal Divine's where I discovered Buried Hatchet beer. So good, and the company was great!

By the way, today is the last day for early-bird registration and critique sign-up for our Austin SCBWI conference coming this February. Our faculty rocks, so don't miss out!

Tim Crow, Shelli Cornelison, Texas Sweethearts Emma Virjan and Don Tate, and Amy Goodwin
