My introduction to writing and illustrating children's books was Uri Shulevitz's guide, Writing With Pictures--I still have it on my bookshelf--and the thought of attending an SCBWI conference terrified me. I came away from my first conference overstimulated and overwhelmed, but also energized and inspired. Through the years, I've learned that there is no better way to meet other author and illustrators, develop your writing and illustrating, and learn from the best in the industry.
So if you happen to be in Hawaii this March, join us for our 2016 SCBWI Hawaii Conference:
in the Sea of Children’s Book Publishing
March 18 – 19, William S. Richardson Law School, University of Hawaii at Manoa
