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. 1-2:30pm
Sometimes, a story idea you might have is better suited for a different category. A picture book idea might be better suited as a chapter book, or an early reader, or a board book. But how do you know? And how do you tackle a new category? Writing across more categories means more opportunities to create and sell stories. Author and illustrator Vicky Fang talks about how to expand your storytelling skills to different categories, including board books, picture books, early readers, graphic novels, and chapter books. She’ll share her process for diving into a new category, as well as basic information to get familiar with each one. She’ll also provide insights into her overall approach to crafting and pitching.
