My name is Jonene Ficklin, and I'm a full-time wife, mom, writer, and professional artist. I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I use colored pencils, oil paints, and watercolors. I love what I do!

Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers

Are you a writer or illustrator looking for a great conference to hone your skills? Well, I have one for you!  It's Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers and it's held June 18-22, 2012 in Sandy, Utah.

This will be my third year and I can't say enough good about it! They have fantastic workshops and speakers. They bring in great writers, artists, editors, and agents. Prepare to be blown away with all the good stuff you'll learn. In fact, each day, you'll leave with your head so full of the latest and greatest, you'll be spouting absolute brilliance for the rest of the evening - so brilliant your friends and loved ones will have a hard time understanding you.

So, if you're looking to become the next J.K. Rowling or Mary GrandPre (the artist for Harry Potter books), check out their website and sign up!

Happy writing, drawing, painting, and sculpting! And, hopefully, I'll see you at WIFYR.


  1. I will be there without fail. I actually bought a plane ticket this year. From Honolulu. Yes, it will so totally be worth it.

  2. I look forward to seeing you there, Rebecca!

  3. Sadness of all sadness, I will be out of town for WIFYR this year. The silver lining: I'M GOING TO ENGLAND! Are you going to LDStorymakers in May?

  4. Julie, I'm sorry! I'll miss you - but wow, have a great time in England. I won't be going to the conference in May, but I'd love to hear about it!

  5. Hello, beautiful space, passing to say hello, nice to read your text.
    if you like the poetry I invite you to my espacioes, thanks.
    happy day.

  6. I am so sad I just read this today. I bet the conference was wonderful. I will have to mark it on my calendar for next year.
