kansas scbwi is all a-twitter
Posted by Lisha Cauthen
We are so frickin’ lucky in this SCBWI region of ours, called Kansas.
I live in Kansas City, Missouri, but the Missouri hub of activity is in St. Louis. The Kansas hub of activity is in Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri.
YES OVERLAND PARK IS A SUBURB OF KANSAS CITY MISSOURI AND YOU KNOW IT, MY FRIENDS.
We’ve got such talent and resources. We can do things like:
That was Jenn Bailey, owner of The Social Lites, a social media company. She’s brilliant of course, has presented at the SCBWI-LA and NY conferences. But she’s more than a Twitterer. She does all kinds of corporate presentations and works for businesses on all their social media needs.
Also, our RA, Kim Peek is a big wheel social media guru, travels to do a lot of presentations.
Could you pick out our RA emeritus, Sue Ford? Big time blogger, computer whiz.
Colleen Cook was in the back, there, schmoozing with Ann Ingalls, author of Little Piano Girl. She’s written quite a few freelance books now, one of which is a very good one about being online safely, for tweeners.
Oh, and Barb Stuber, author of Crossing the Tracks was getting her feet wet. And we had newbies and semi-newbies and even somebody who was just there eating a doughnut who joined us.
And of course Melody, who wanted to make a love connection with Old Spice Guy.
Oh, who can blame her? God help me, I love these commercials.
