2011 Conference Series-Distinguished Faculty: Sara Easterly

We've been focusing on Keynote Speakers, Agent Faculty, and Editorial & Art Director Faculty, but we'd like to introduce some of our incredible other Distinguished Faculty. First up is Sara Easterly, who is an author and publicist, and many of you know her as the former SCBWI WWA co-Regional Advisor.

Sara's first children’s book was LIGHTS, CAMERA, FASHION! for ArtLab: Fashion Studio, and was illustrated by fellow SCBWI WWA member Jaime Temairik. Additionally, Sara has published several magazine articles and is currently writing a middle-grade/tween graphic novel series that she's working on with Jaime.

An author publicist, as well, Sara handles publicity for fellow SCBWI WWA members Kirby Larson and Bonny Becker. She also handles PR for readergirlz and book publisher Wizards of the Coast, supporting New York Times bestselling authors R.A. Salvatore, Margaret Weis, and Tracy Hickman.

You can find more about Sara and her work on her website. Sara wrote a post on writing as a guest blogger on the readergirlz website.
