Marvelous Midwest Member Intensives

Two and a half-hour intensives give SCBWI members an extra opportunity to work on areas of interest with industry professionals in a smaller group setting. $50 fee, registration required, must be an SCBWI premium member to register for an intensive.


The Nuts and Bolts of Work-for-Hire: An Author’s Perspective + An Illustrator’s Perspective Elizabeth Gilbert Bedia (author) and Candace Camling (illustrator)

This intensive will look at the Work-for-Hire (WFH) process from both an author’s perspective and an illustrator’s perspective. Topics to be covered: pro and cons of WFH, proposals, sample texts and sample portfolios, how to put yourself and your work out there through social media and other avenues, and current publishers and companies open to WFH. Please come with ideas, questions, and get ready to talk through some mock proposals and work on your own proposals. Liz and Candace hope to provide you with the tools you need to help your work stand out in the WFH world.
