SCBWI Working Writers Retreat Class of 2013

Last weekend I attended the SCBWI L.A. Working Writers Retreat. This was the 4th time I’ve attended and I have to say the retreat just seems to keep on getting better and better.

When I first attended the retreat I’d asked the organizers if I could get the group together for a class picture—simply because I loved my experience so far and wanted a little keepsake of my wonderful time there. Four retreats later, the photo session has become an anticipated part of the weekend schedule, and I’ve become the retreat’s official photographer.

I’m not a professional photographer, but my aim is always to capture the essence of an event. The SCBWI Working Writers Retreat this year was all sorts of amazing, and I hope to share a glimpse of its wonderful spirit with these pictures.
