On November 20, about forty area writers gathered at the Plaza Embassy Suites. Paula Morrow, executive editor of Babybug and Ladybug and editor of Cricket Books, provided plenty of pearls to help us craft intriguing queries and snappy synopses.

Diane Frook, Lisa Wade McCormick and Demar Regier were among thirteen lucky JWKC members to receive an in-depth critique and ten-minute consultation with Paula Morrow.

 
 
 
 
 
 
The second pearl: Take all advice with a grain of salt. There are a lot of conflicting opinions out there.
