More SCBWI illustrator opportunities in Maryland

Via Susan Detwiler, Illustrator Coordinator MD/DE/WV SCBWI:

Maryland/Delaware/West Virginia
SCBWI Lucky13 Conference

Our fall conference features more art topics than ever!

With Coretta Scott King and ALA notable award winner Floyd Cooper, HarperCollins art director Martha Rago, and a panel on and by author-illustrators, this is one of our strongest for artists. Whatever your experience level, I'm sure you will find new ideas and inspiration at Lucky 13, our September 21 and 22 conference in Frederick, MD.

I want to let you know of two specific opportunities for illustrators. There will be a place to display your portfolio, and (on Sunday) a First Look slideshow of illustrations which will be critiqued by a panel, along with First Pages for writers. Illustrators may send up to three images, and they will be shown together anonymously in the PowerPoint slideshow. If you wish to participate, please send up to 3 jpeg images to me by Monday, September 9, 2013. The ideal size for each image is no more than 10" on a side @ 100 dpi.

Portfolio review spots are still available with Martha Rago and Floyd Cooper and our own region's Tim Young and Rebecca Evans. 

Please consider attending. It isn't often we have the chance to learn from so much talent so near at hand.

I'm happy to answer any questions.
