Two dynamic speakers will be sharing their expertise in the writing and publishing field this quarter. Christine Taylor-Butler is the author of more than 75 children’s books and currently serves as President of the Missouri Writers Guild. She will be presenting in the morning on Breaking into the Children’s Market, and Eliminating the Passive Voice in your writing during the afternoon session.
