At the conference we are especially psyched when a past registrant, volunteer or staff member makes it onto our faculty. Can’t help but feel as if we are doing something right. Sometimes it’s hard to brag about successes, but in this case we are happy to do just that.

Amy Kathleen Ryan and Deanna Neill came to the conference a few years back and now they provide feedback to writers who, like them, are interested in Young Adult novels.

In addition to writing novels, Ryan has a blog.
