Illustrator Intensive Coming up!
The workshop with award-winning author/illustrator Pat Cummings is tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to meeting her, hearing her advice on my piece, and seeing what all the other participants have come up with. I think that's one of the biggest benefits, learning tools, of a workshop like this, getting to see how everyone else handles art direction, and just what that art direction is!
And for all of us writers, Pat is also holding a Writer's Roundtable while she is in town. What a great opportunity to get to work on both the illustrating and writing sides of the business! This SCBWI-AZ sponsored event takes place tonight. You can read more about it on the events page of the SCBWI-AZ website.
It's going to be a busy next few days! We have one more local event coming up this Monday featuring bestselling author-illustrator Bruce Hale. "Make Your Story Unputdownable" A Session for Middle Grade Writers. The registration for this event has been expanded. You can still register if you send your check today and contact our regional adviser and let her know.
