Serious about improving your craft? SCBWI's regional events provide opportunities for professional growth and help you connect with a supportive, creative community.
Join Chris Bailey for a monthly co-working virtual social for members living in Central Virginia on the first Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm. Participants will chat and share their writing or illustrating goals for the day and then do two 30 min timed work sprints, checking in with the group in between work sessions. It’s a great way to meet other creatives living in your area and get some writing or illustrating done, too. Writing doesn’t have to always be solitary! For members only. The session is free. Please register below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Chris. ** A link to attend this zoom social will be emailed to the group on the morning of the meeting.
Do you want your book to captivate and create tension that makes your readers feel as if they're walking on a tightrope suspended 50 feet above ground? Join award-winning author Valerie Bolling and learn tips, and see examples from picture books, that will show you how to heighten the tension in your story.
Kick off the new year with a January write-in/draw-in with author/illustrator Katie Erickson. Are you an illustrator or author who fears the blank page? In this interactive presentation, Katie will share a few different tactics to get over that hump and find your way gently into the “flow." Then, there will be time for writing and/or illustrating for the rest of the evening session. We hope everyone will leave inspired and ready to conquer that page.
