  • We are now authorized to hold small, in-person events. However, we must continue to follow all local and state guidelines for gathering, such as if these events can be held indoors versus only outdoors. Because these guidelines vary by county and sometimes even city, we will inform you on the social distancing and mask-wearing requirements for your particular area when we plan in person events. In the meantime, please continue to follow CDC and health department guidelines to prevent spread of COVID-19 illness. This includes: current social distancing, practicing good hand hygiene, avoidance of touching your face with unwashed hands, and  staying home if sick. Please visit the CDC.gov for additional information. We hope to have updates about larger indoor gatherings soon.

Fantastic news, Anne Marie! 2018 RMC Letters & Lines Fall Conference After participating in a novel intensive at the 2017 Letters and Lines conference, Megan E. Freeman was invited by the editor to send her full manuscript.  After reading it and offering suggestions, the editor suggested some agents. As a direct result of querying those agents, Megan is happy to announce that she has signed with Deborah Warren of East West Literary Agency.  Megan is excited to join the Rocky Mountain contingent of East West writers and illustrators, and is so grateful for the support and opportunities provided by RMC-SCBWI and to all the people who make Letters and Lines happen every year.  Way to go, Megan! 2018RMC Big Sur in the Rockies Agent Workshop for Illustrators Illustrator Darla Okada signed with agent Kelly Sonnack (Andrea Brown Literary Agency) after participating in the the Big Sur Agent Workshop for Illustrators on May 17.
