Webster’s defines the term ‘symposium’ as a gathering where there is an interchange of ideas. SCBWI Austin has gathered together a number of local accomplished professionals who are well-versed in various aspects of the quick-moving, fast-changing business of e-publishing to lead us in such an exchange of ideas regarding Storytelling in the Digital Age. As a result of this symposium’s interchange of ideas, our creative community will be better equipped to embrace the changes before us in the continually evolving, ever-exciting world of digital publishing.

The fees for this event are $75.00 for members and $100.00 for non-members. Fee includes a morning coffee/ juice bar and lunch. Mark your calendars for Saturday October 8, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at St. Edward’s University - Fleck Hall.
