“Hate Outlining? Write a Treatment”: Learn what a treatment is and why it is an effective and time-saving tool to develop and test your next story concept. – SCBWI Professional Series, 2013

“Monsters!”: We all know boys love monsters. Buy why? And does it turn them into monsters? In this discussion-style presentation Royce talks monsters, boys, and reluctant readers as well as survey attending librarians on what they do and don’t pick for their collections and why. Thought provoking questions discussion during this session include: Is confronting monsters in fiction empowering or just exploitive writing? Are peril and violence the same thing or only distinctly related? Is gore helpful, harmful or just an innocent by-product to be made into sausage? How are ghost stories and monster tales the same or different? –  Washington Library Media Association, 2012

“Getting out of Solitary”: Prosecuting attorney Royce Buckingham spent 13 years writing monster stories alone in the dark before emerging one day a wide-eyed children’s author. Join Royce for an entertaining look at what it’s like to suddenly become a published “author” and realize you know absolutely nothing abut the book world. – Washington Library Media Association, 2010
