It's that time of year again - the Raleigh SCBWI Schmooze is coming! Mark your Calendars!

Click the flyer (above) to read the "First pages" and "illustration critique" submission rules, and to learn more about the event and more about the authors/illustrators on the Schmooze panel.

For those who can't read small print, here are the Critique submission rules:
You may present one piece of artwork or one first page. First pages should be no
more than 250 words and should fit on a single page. Do not include the author
name; submissions will be anonymous. Submissions should include the title and
genre in the upper right hand corner. The panel will critique as may first pages and illustrations
as they are able to in the time allowed. We are open to submissions in children’s literature only.
Genres include Young Adult, Middle Grade, Chapter Books, Early Readers, and Picture books. Please bring your submission to Quail Ridge Books on May 20th at the beginning of the event. For Illustration Critiques – Bring one piece of artwork at the beginning of the event.

So, those are the rules. : )

Before I begin posting on writermorphosis the author interviews noted in last week's "each one teach one" post, I wanted to give you all an update about this great event for children's/YA writers and illustrators occurring soon in the NC area!
.
The annual Raleigh SCBWI Schmooze is a great event for Childrens'/YA writers and illustrators, taking place again this year in Raleigh, NC. This Schmooze is lots of fun, and a well-attended event every year. Let's pack out Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh with current and aspiring childrens' authors and illustrators again in 2012 -- at 3pm on May 20th!
Find directions at (www.Quailridgebooks.com)

More info. on the presenters is available at their websites:

John Bemis and Karen Lee will also be interviewed on writermorphosis over the next month in "each one teach one" posts. So come back here over the next few weeks to learn more about them, their writing/illustrating, and which other writers/illustrators influenced them and helped them learn skills they needed in order for them to get where they are in the profession today. The tips they learned from their mentors can further our own writing and illustrating careers too.

And I must say, what's not to love about getting great writing/illustrating tips and networking with other authors/illustrators while sipping wine in the middle of a book store. Thanks Quail Ridge for hosting SCBWI and the Goalies agein this year!

Wish I could be there. Guess I'll have to wait for the SCBWI Carolina's in the fall to see everyone again.
