Please note: We've posted this discussion in two parts due to it's length, but believe me you'll want to watch the entire thing. Enjoy!

Loved all the questions. I felt like I just took another workshop from SCBWI (i know it was for writeoncon but just saying.) For a writer most agents/editors can seem scary and those women were so friendly and approachable. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my goodness, it's wonderful that things are still moving along according to plan. That way we still have access to all of the wonderful resources and advice that has been prepared for us by our hard working staff and faculty. Thanks all around guys!

This was great. This was the first time I've seen (heard) the question about the follow up book under contract. Nice to know if I ever get to that point. :)

Wonderful to see and hear the answers to those questions in Holly, Molly and Martha's own voices. Really shows the power of "voice." Thanks for having this up and on the blog.
