SCBWI Opportunities/Conference Info

Posted on: July 27, 2010

SCBWI-MI Fall Conference 2010
Patrick Collins Workshop
Dear SCBWI-MI Member:

There seems to be some confusion regarding the Patrick Collins Illustration Workshop at this fall’s SCBWI-MI conference. All the information you need is in the brochure. The deadlines are listed below. Be assured, SCBWI-MI would NEVER send out an opportunity like this on a Friday and ask you to register by Monday.

Please read your brochure!! This information IS in there!!

Once again, here is the information, copied directly from the brochure.

Patrick Collins–Enchanting the Reader: Transforming Words into Illustrations (20 participants) Participants will illustrate a scene or spread from one of four manuscripts (available at by Monday, July 26) and send it to Patrick. He will review the art, send back revision suggestions, and ask the artists to bring the finished pieces to the breakout, where all the illustrations will be discussed. If you are not one of the registered participants, you are still welcome to sit in on the session as Patrick discusses the art “homework.”

NOTE: Do NOT send artwork with your registration. You will be notified via email where and when to send art.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
