Smarter Artist Summit 2016 – Looking Back

Social media posts posted after the Smarter Artist Summit 2016.

These are some of the posts that appeared after they all went home, posted here as they showed up, so in totally random order – but that shouldn’t stop us from enjoying them :)

Thank you to every single person that attended the inaugural Smarter Artist Summit. I know I'm supposed to be a writer and all but I can't properly describe the exact feeling when you find your people. We just spent 2+ days with some of the smartest, kindest people. Who all happen to be doing the same work, and all happen to have the same sense of humor. There is not one person I met this week that didn't belong to this tribe. I know Johnny, Sean and Dave are the "hosts" of the event. But we kind of deliberately didn't use the word "leader" for a reason. Sean told me yesterday he thought there were a lot of future millionaires in that room. I can think of so many Summit attendees that would be great speakers for next year. How often does that happen? That a conference is able to gather that many truly talented, genius people in one place. All of this is to say, yes 'the boys' did great, and the speakers were amazing, and I did ok … But this all literally would have been work in vain if you all (OUR PEOPLE) hadn't supported and believed and invested in a ticket for the Summit. We know it's not inexpensive. Especially when you remember it's our first event. We cannot thank you enough for being our people. PS if you weren't able to attend this year, ask an attendee about the #legendofbenhale (he's in the blue in this photo)

I had the pleasure of spending the past few days with this fine young gentleman, @donovanscherer . You need to check out his illustration work. He has a style all his own with that perfect combination of cute, creepy and fun. But he's not just an illustrator, he's a forward thinker that doesn't take the middle grade book world at face value. It was a real pleasure getting to know him, and I hope you'll take the time to check him out too. He's here on Instagram, and if you click on his profile link it will take you to more of his awesome work.

Technically, I guess these pictures don’t belong here, because they’re after the summit, but they’re AWESOME. And taken when all were gathered in Austin. So here goes:

Kind of doing work stuff today, but I genuinely love spending my birthday with these people.
