SCBWI Illustrators' Day - coming soon!!
Our Southern Breeze (Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi) chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) will host our annual Illustrators' Day this Friday, September 2nd at the Decatur Library in Decatur, Georgia, and there's still time to sign up if you'd like to join us!
This year, we have some amazing speakers: Kristen Nobles, Art Director from Candlewick Press; Robert Agis, Editor from Sterling Children's Books; Mike Lowery, SCAD professor and illustrator of The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School - written by Laura Murray, who will also be joining us. Once again, we had a mentor assignment for the first 12 signees - hosted by illustrator Michael Austin. And we'll have our portfolio display with quick overviews by our guest speakers so those just starting out can get a real idea of how quickly decisions are made and how their work might fare in the children's book market.
To sign up, go to our Southern Breeze Illustrators' Corner blog and click on "Illustrators Day."
And many thanks to Mike Lowery for creating our fantastic poster!
Hope to see you there!
