San Francisco Writers Conference

I’ve just finished my first day at the 13th SF Writers Conference up at the Mark Hopkins Hotel. What a whirlwind of instruction! ¬†Among many other things, we were coached on the finer points of pitches (we’re not talking baseball here) and given honest feedback by agents willing to hurt feelings for our good.

Here’s my (edited) pitch:

“Spring is a dreamy picture book that unfolds the wonder of Spring for 3-5 year olds and their parents and grandparents. This lyrical poem has sun-drenched illustrations and is designed to be read over and over at bedtimes. This 32 page book has the feeling of Goodnight Moon.”

Author and Co-illustrator, Jeannine Gerkman.
