SummaryThe Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators of Western Washington offers an introduction to writing and illustrating for children and teens.
DescriptionInterested in learning more about writing, illustrating, and getting books published for children and young adults? The Western Washington chapter of the international SCBWI invites you to come to their 2018-2019 kick-off meeting and program for free. The morning includes an introduction to SCBWI, a presentation on resources for those getting started as well as those who are already published, a Q&A, and some time at the end for networking.

Our presenter is Jolie Stekly, who teaches the year-long Writing for Children program at the University of Washington. Over the past ten years she has worked with numerous editors, agents, authors, and illustrators to develop programming for conference, retreats, and classes. She was recognized as SCBWI’s 2009 Member of the Year and now welcomes hundreds of first-time conference attendees to the international conference in Los Angeles, helping them make the most of their experience. She holds a master's degree in education, is on the blog team for the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and is represented by the literary agent Rosemary Stimola. She writes young adult novels.
