November 14th – Illustrator’s Day

There’s still time to sign up for the 3rd Annual Illustrator’s Day!
Connect with two leading art directors in the children’s publishing industry from two of the world’s leading publishing houses:

Simon & Schuster and Scholastic.

Did you know that between these two publishers, you have the chance of being one of the published illustrators among more than 1,000 titles per year? These are two of the biggest publishing houses in the world and two of the hardest publishing houses to get your foot in the door. But here’s your chance, make those connections right here in New Jersey.

In case you missed any previous e-mails, read below for your chance to sign up for NJ SCBWI’s Thirds Annual Conference. An amazing opportunity NOT to be missed!

Increase your chances of becoming published. Not only will you have an opportunity to meet the art directors in person but you also have a chance to work with them on a live project. Gain experience, a new contact AND a new piece — or two — for your portfolio.
Date: Sunday, Nov. 14th 2010
Where: Hyatt Regency Hotel, Princeton, NJ
Cost: $215 SCBWI Members    $250 Non-member
Included: Continental breakfast, Intensive workshop, pre-assigned illustration project, one-on-one portfolio review, lunch, breakout sessions, fabulous facilities, and priceless networking opportunities!

Don’t delay, sign up today!

PLUS: Hotel rooms are available at a special rate of $95 if you wish to stay Friday night AND maybe if you want to really push your work to the next level, why not sign up for  a 3-hour Picture Book Workshop on friday afternoon for an additional $30. 

Learn how to perfect your page turners, create some BANG! in your book and learn how to engage readers in an engaging and creative way. Hands-on exercises are a part of this invaluable workshop and probably one of the cheapest value-for-money sessions you might ever attend. This workshop has the potential to go longer if you’re all up for it. Be inspired, be there and be creative — let’s make fabby children’s books together!

More details about the workshop, contact 

Don’t miss getting a spot!

Talk tomorrow,
