Need an excuse to eat ice cream? The EPA SCBWI is giving you the perfect excuse!
Did you hear about the brand new EPA SCBWI event on August 17, 2014 in King of Prussia Pa? It’s called Industry Scoop: Picture Books & Sundaes where you not only indulge in the yummy ingredients of a DIY Sundae Bar, but you can also indulge in learning the ingredients of a successful picture book of the yummiest kind from literary agent Stephen A. Fraser of the Jennifer DeChiara agency! If you’ve been churning a perfect picture book story around, you can’t miss this opportunity!
You can register by clicking here. If you are already an SCBWI member, be sure you’re logged in to see the member registration price. If you’re not already a member, you are still welcome to attend or even better – why not sign up and join us for our other events too?
The Industry Scoop promises to be a fun and fabulous day for aspiring picture book authors. You’ll hear from literary agent Stephen Fraser, as well as editor at Roaring Brook Press & picture book enthusiast Emily Feinberg, and more faculty TBA very soon. Also, get some fabulous picture books signed by guest authors Jennifer Hansen Rolli, the award-winning Greg Pizzoli and more TBA!
Now…how about some fun leading up to the event?
CONTEST: Register for the Industry Scoop Event, then return to this post and reply below with a Children’s Book Inspired Sundae Name & what ingredients would be in it.
For example, how about a Brownie B. Jones sundae?
It would “Tickle” the taste buds in your “Big Fat Mouth” with an ounce of “Peep in Her Pocket marshmallows”, some “Mushy Gushy Valentine” strawberries, and a scoop of “Aloha-ha”-hot fudge. But you won’t find any “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake” on this sundae!
The SCBWI team will randomly draw 5 winners from all entries who will receive 20% off registration to the Fall Philly event scheduled for November 8 as well as full bragging rights. Winners will be announced at the August 17th event.
Warning – you may have to taste test many, many bowls of ice cream before you find the right concoction for entry. Please wear elastic pants and a frozen-treat induced smile.
