Interested in writing or illustrating children books? Embark on a voyage through the world of children’s book publishing, where you can hear from industry experts, polish your writing and/or illustration skills, have your work critiqued by a professional, and meet other writers and illustrators!
This year we’re thrilled to host author-illustrator Dan Santat, the recipient of the 2015 Randolph Caldecott Medal for his book, The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend. Dan has published over fifty books for children, which include the Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot series by Dav Pilkey, Oh No! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World) by Mac Barnett which won the Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators, and the New York Times best-selling book, Because I'm Your Dad by Ahmet Zappa. He is also the creator of the Disney animated series, The Replacements.
If you have a Facebook profile, be sure to send a request to add yourself to our closed Facebook Discussion Group. It's a creative space to connect with other SCBWI-Hawaii members and post questions, artwork, events and resources relevant to writing and illustrating for children.
