I've been lucky enough to attend several SCBWI events as well as a few RWA events and everyone has always been helpful, encouraging, and nothing short of amazing. I even made a few new friends editor, author, and librarian friends that I keep in touch with. It was refreshing to meet these amazing men and women who are so ready to lend their help and support. So when my memberships expire, I will absolutely be renewing!
