Teen Scouts help the Mill Valley Masketeers by cutting hundreds of t-shirts to make ear ties. Led by local Mill Valley citizen Lee Budish, people from around the community came together like the Scouts, to donate fabric, cut, sew and deliver over 14,000 masks to those in need.
We have been bubbling over with new SCBWI events, new speakers and lots of new volunteers helping out. Children’s writers and illustrators are the most kind and welcoming crowd. How could we not be? We write for the best audience in the world – CHILDREN.
We have some great meetings coming up with top local speakers on craft and taking your work to the next level. Check out our events calendar, http://sfnortheastbay.scbwi.org/events/ and pick out a meeting that is right for you. Coming up: The JOY of Revision, with Summer Dawn Laurie on June 28th at Corte Madera Town Center Community Room, and July 19th with award-winning author/illustrator/publisher Marissa Moss at Laurel Bookstore, Oakland.
Plus, we are launching our illustrator contest for the 2014 Fall Conference Masthead. Don’t miss out on participating!
