(Hawaii • Kauai) Evening with Author/Illustrator Katie Davis

4:00 pm

3610 Rice Street - Lihue, HI 96766


Please join Katie Davis and SCBWI Hawaii for a 20 minute Q & A through Zoom and a happy hour meet up at Duke’s Kauai for any local SCBWI members. If you are a member visiting Kauai for the Writer’s conference you are welcome to join us. We will chat about her children’s books, the Institute of Children’s Literature, and her podcast for writers.

Katie Davis is the author/illustrator of over a dozen traditionally published books for children (picture books, middle grade, and young adult novels). She self-published How to Write a Children’s Book and How to Promote Your Children’s Book, both debuting at #1 on Amazon. All told, they’ve sold over 820,400 copies worldwide.

Because Katie’s secret superpower is her ability to teach writers about writing, tech, and marketing, she created digital courses and products for writers such as How to Create Your Author Platform (and Market Your Books without Being Pushy), Video Idiot Boot Camp, and Launch Your Book Blueprint. She also co-founded Picture Book Summit, the largest and first live online conference of its kind.

Katie’s first podcast Brain Burps About Books was an interview show and began in 2010. Her second is Writing for Children, full of bite-sized, craft oriented lessons. As a regular guest on WTNH, Katie recommended children’s books for four years, and has appeared on the TEDx stage.

She has been honored to speak everywhere from a maximum security prison, to elementary schools, to university level, including UCONN and Yale, and has keynoted conferences and fundraising galas.

Using her now not-so-secret superpower allowed Katie and her husband, Jerry Davis, to take over the almost 50-year-old Institute of Children’s Literature and its sister school, the Institute for Writers, where, as of this writing, over 470,027 people have taken college level writing courses and learned to write for both children and adults.
