SCBWI-IL Rockford Network 'Author visit with Lorelei Savaryn'

Lorelei is a writer, whose stories focus on the atmospheric and creepy, but always with a pulse of hope. She is represented by Chloe Seager at Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency in London.

Musicality in Manuscripts Author Anitra Rowe Schulte will help us make our manuscripts sing.

SCBWI-IL Near West Suburban Network 'A Day in the Life of a Children's Librarian'

Rose Hopkins-LaRocco has spent a good amount of her life in libraries. Her grandmother was a librarian and in high school, Rose’s first job was as a page at her local library. She strayed briefly to receive a degree in Theater at Columbia College Chicago and work in children’s theater. Therefore, she is uniquely qualified to be a children’s librarian, as play and storytelling were a main component of her education. Rose received her Master's of Library and Information Science from Dominican University. She has been the Children’s Services Director at the La Grange Park Public Library since 2016. When not “librarianing,” she can be found walking her silly dog, baking and eating pastries, and of course, reading.

SCBWI-IL Chicago Southside Network 'Editor Talk with Josh Gregory, AW & Co.'

A lifelong reader and accumulator of books, Josh Gregory has equal appreciation for a good story and a nice-looking cover. The Boxcar Children was one of the formative books of his childhood, so getting to work on the series as an adult is a real thrill for him. Before joining Albert Whitman as an editor, he spent more than 10 years writing and editing children’s nonfiction. When he’s not reading or seeking out new books for his collection, he can often be found bouncing between Chicago’s many movie theaters and music venues.

SCBWI-IL Chicago-Area Illustrators' Network 'Carrie Carlson on Nature Journaling'

Carrie Carlson's love of nature and passion for nature journaling shine throughout this incredible presentation with the Chicago Area Illustrators' Network. You won't just leave inspired; you get hands-on practice of three nature journaling exercises (have your sketchbook and a pencil ready), a list of places and ways to connect with others who love nature journaling, and some simple ideas for creating your travel nature journaling kit. Whether you want to continue with a nature journaling practice or not, you'll find a deeper connection to nature, enhance your observational skills (important for all writers and illustrators), practice mindfulness, and reduce stress.
