A month ago I attended the Austin SCBWI writer’s conference where one of the faculty was the illustrator, E.B. Lewis. On Illustrator Mark Mitchell’s blog, How to be a Children’s Book Illustrator, he summarized a lot of what E.B. Lewis talked about at the conference. Even if you are not an illustrator, you might want to read this excellent post because if you write picture books, you will be collaborating with illustrators on that book.
And here’s a treat. You just have to take a peek at the Fall 2013 Sneak Previews of children’s books coming out in the fall. The list is published by the online Publishers Weekly.
If I made a chore of (writing), my enthusiasm would die. I make it an adventure every day.
