Write-in/Sketch-In for Children’s and YA Writers and Illustrators II

Don’t forget about the next Write-in/Sketch-in this Saturday, February 6th at the Finksburg Branch Library in Finksburg, Maryland! From our website:

Work on your latest project surrounded by fellow authors and illustrators, with refreshments, hourly door prizes, and lots of moral support!  This free program is co-sponsored by Carroll County Public Library and the MD/DE/WV Region of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Please RSVP by February 3rd at our website to help us plan for refreshments!

So bring your laptops, sketch pads, pens, pencils or what have you, creative juices and for me … good set of ear buds since I’d be tempted to chat otherwise … for a lovely four hours of concentrated work time. Hope to see you there!

Also this month, there will be a Creating a Successful Illustration Portfolio Workshop on Sunday, February 21st at the Central Branch Library in Columbia, Maryland! From our website:

Join Illustrator Coordinator Rebecca Evans and other experienced artists for a hands-on workshop as we learn how to create a successful illustration portfolio that will help you gain the attention of agents, authors and publishing houses. Discuss what the elements of a winning portfolio are and what pieces are best left at home. Bring your portfolio – no matter what stage of development it is in.

Happy writing and drawing!



About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
