About the SCBWI-Midsouth Region
The Midsouth Region serves SCBWI members who live in Kentucky and Tennessee. We have an active agenda of programs, events, and services to support our professional growth: an annual fall conference, a quarterly newsletter, an online listserv, an illustration blog Midsouth Illustration Blog, and various volunteer-organized activities. Many of our members are experienced speakers and enjoy presenting workshops at schools, libraries, and conferences. Contact regional advisor Kristin Tubb if you have questions.
Many of our Midsouth members are members of the Midsouth_Kidbooks listserv which allows children's book authors and illustrators to interact, share information, offer advice, and receive announcements about events for writers and illustrators, including SCBWI events. It is technically not an SCBWI affiliated listserv, though. The listserv is free and open to anyone with an interest in writing and/or illustrating for children. You don't need to live in the Midsouth or be a member of SCBWI to join. Contact listserv moderator Evelyn Christensen at <Evelyn.Christensen@gmail.com> for more information.
Midsouth Illustration Blog
Susan Eaddy, our Midsouth Illustrator Coordinator has created a group blog for our illustrator members. <http://midsouthillustrators.blogspot.com/ > If you’re a member of the SCBWI, belong to the Midsouth region, and would like to contribute to the blog, contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you are set up, you will be able to make all the postings yourself.
What to post? Artwork, sketches, latest releases, inspirations, and anything else pictorial that relates to children’s illustration work. Although you may have lovely work in other areas, this blog is for your children’s illustration work only.
Remember this is a publicly viewable blog which is actively promoted to publishers and other media, so don’t post anything you’re not happy for the world to see. And be sure you have permission from your clients to post pre-publication work.
Everyone, of course, is encouraged to comment on posts!
