CANSCAIP Packaging Your Imagination Meeting Nov 10/2012

Packaging Your Imagination (PYI) is the pickhit conference extravaganza that sells out early and leaves everyone breathless with inspiration. Editors, writers and illustrators share their tips and just in time for Christmas, you can buy autographed copies of their work. February 11, 2012 we met to hammer out details of the November 10, 2012 PYI.  Everything from how much food to order to whom we should invite to give the keynote address got decided in a very cordial way.  Remember you heard it first here.  Shh, shh! This is top secret but some of the confirmed speakers so far include:  Paul Yee, Christopher Moore, Norma Charles, Carolyn Beck, Lena Coakley, Tim Wynne Jones, Clayton Hamner, Patricia Ocampo, Sheila Barry, Richard Scrimger, Vladyann KrykorkaRebecca Upjohn, and Helaine Becker.  More to come yet. Some of the people in the photos, wonderful creators in their own right, are Patricia Storms, of course sitting under theart, Sharon Jennings, Lena Coakley, Gisela Sherman, Karen Krossing and Mahtab Narsihman.  We're looking forward to November.
