2018 Is Going To Be A Great Year for EPA SCBWI!
Saturday April 14th, 9 AM to 4:30 PM—Meeting 1 of “The Picture Book Masterclass.” This intensive six-month workshop is designed for intermediate to advanced illustrators who have a story idea or manuscript they would like to illustrate. At every meeting, attendees will receive personal feedback from two publishing professionals: the mentor agent and a special guest. Our mentor agent exclusively represents children’s book authors and illustrators, including our first special guest, an up-and-coming, published author-illustrator whose debut picture book releases February this year. At the second meeting, illustrators will receive feedback on their revised story and thumbnails from the mentor agent and a senior book designer. At the last meeting, our agent and an art director will review and critique participants’ dummies and two final illustrations. Meeting #2 is Saturday July 20th and meeting #3 is Saturday October 20th. Meetings #2 and 3 will take place at the Free Library of Philadelphia.
