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.

    Adam Lehrhaupt made us laugh with his entertaining monkey book, Do Not Open This Book.

    Bryan Collier demonstrated that hard work and determination pays off and his artwork was nothing short of inspiring. For 7 years, he hit the pavement until one day, someone said YES.

    Debbie Dadey taught us that a ‘no’ means you get back to the keyboard or the canvas and KEEP going.

    Linda Oatman High made us excited to be a writer and/or illustrator. Stories exist in even the smallest picture.

    And that was just Saturday morning!
