Juried Submissions: What information do jurors really take into consideration?

Networking, Forging Communities, Connections, Opportunities

  Here I am as the "Applause  Lady" at a
  SNAG Conference. I don't normally
 dress like this, but it was fun.

Though I love the virtual world, there will never be a substitute for going to a symposium, meeting people in person, or listening to a lecture live. A serendipitous moment can change your professional future. It has happened to me time and time again. Make it happen for yourself.

With this in mind, here is information about an upcoming symposium in the S.F. Bay Area, followed by links and brief information about the speakers.
