November Monthly Meeting

Main Presentation

Ben Clanton. Let's INTERPLAY! (A.K.A. When Words and Pictures Meet)
This hands-on workshop (yes, there will be drawing and writing games!) will cover how illustrations can parallel, augment, and/or contradict the text in a book, AND how the text can set up fun and/or interesting illustration opportunities. Writing illustration notes, working out pagination, and learning from mentor texts will also be explored.

Mini Presentation

Dan Gemeinhart, Crunchy and Chewy: How to combine great plot and killer emotion in MG. Like a Snickers bar, great middle grade novels have both "crunch" (A high-stakes, exciting plot) and "Chew" (A gooey, compelling emotional center). Learn to combine these elements to create a novel that will please both readers and agents. Learn to hone the emotional heart of your story, and bring it forward into action for one delicious, satisfying narrative.

When:  November 9, 2016
            7:00 - 9:00

Where: Demaray Hall
             3307 3rd Ave. W.
             Seattle, Washington 

Even if you are not working on a PB or MG, there is certainly something for everyone to glean from what is sure to be an awesome presentation. And, you get to see your fellow SCBWI friends and make new ones. Oh, and don't forget the yummylicious snacks!

Happy Writing and Illustrating,
