new pictures from Maranatha

My time at the conference went by quickly, but it was a great week.  I was very excited to win third place in two contests, one for my poem “terminus ad quem” and another for the short story “The Great Root Beer Fiasco”.  I made some great contacts with agents, editors, and fellow writers,  and got a really positive review and critique on a book I am writing called Passages. Holly Miller, who is the senior editor of The Saturday Evening Post, did that critique for me. In addition to the Post position  she has written and co-authored several books, as well as writing several hundred articles for various magazines and publications. 
Many  great pictures  came out of the conference, most taken from the balcony of the third-floor condo we stayed in. I posted three of those below.
This coming Friday through Sunday I will be at the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) conference in Battle Creek.

Terri, your blog looks great! I think you may have surpassed Irene (which I didn’t think possible) with having an instantaneous legion of loyal followers.
