The goal of this blog is to bring and share information about Writing and Illustrating for children to published and unpublished authors and illustrators. I will post information I acquire from my interactions with editors and agents in the industry and share thoughts and techniques of other writers and illustrators in the field. Please send me your articles to help Children’s book professionals in the process of getting published. – Thanks, Kathy
A little about me:
I’m the former Regional Advisor in New Jersey for the SCBWI. It was a lot of work, but writing and illustrating and helping people is a passion of mine. Please visit my website to see my portfoilo and activity book titled “Horseplay.” www.kathytemean.com. If you have a passion to writer or illustrate for children, you should visit www.newjerseyscbwi.com and look at our events. We are a very active chapter and our members who come out and participate have been very successful in furthering their writing and illustrating careers.
I also run Temean Consulting, a Web Design and Marketing company for the creative individual or business. Children’s writers and illustrators will recognize the many clients we work with to show off their talents. Check out www.temeanconsulting.com and see some of the sites we have designed and developed for award winning authors, like Jerry Spinelli and Eileen Spinelli and David L Harrison.
In addition to heading up the NJSCBWI and writing and illustrating children’s books and magzines, I teach a children’s writing class and conduct classes for adults to learn the ins and outs of using Photoshop to enhance your illustrating. I also, do school visits to encourage writing and illustrating and conduct workshops for authors to assist in helping them market themselves. I have presented at the Highlights for Children “Life in the Spotlight” for the last few years and I am the editor-in-chief of Sprouts Magazine. - Please check out my website www.kathytemean.com
