CWILL BC is offering a children’s book illustrator master class. As a rule, CWILL BC’s author and illustrator master classes are only open to CWILL BC members. But for this one, they’ve opened up a couple of spots to non-members. (There are literally only a couple of seats left – so move fast if you want to take part!) Full details on the CWILL BC blog.
There are lots of conversations going on about children’s books on the internet these days. Here are a few places to listen, read or join in:
On the CWILL BC blog, there’s a new series called Tuesday Tell-All, where authors and illustrators can answer the question of the week. Join the conversation over there in the comments section, or suggest a question for a future Tuesday.
On Bubble Stampede, two authors carry on a nine month conversation about promotion. The conversation touches on everything from the dreaded author photo to social networking to book signings.
And as always, Just One More Book!!! is going strong with interviews with writers, illustrators, editors, publishers etc etc. (there’s a new interview on the site about children’s book illustration gallery shows that looks interesting).
It’s almost time for the CWILL BC 2008 Spring Book Hatching.
It all goes down tomorrow (June 14th) between 1 and 3pm at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch on Georgia Street (Peter Kaye Room and lower level).
Everything from picture books to young adult/teen novels will be represented. There will also be activities for kids, prizes to be won, autographs to be collected and book presentations to hear. Hope to see you there!
