EPA SCBWI proudly presents

Picture Book Masterclass 2020

 

Registration opens November 16, 2019

 

Eastern PA SCBWI’s Picture Book Masterclass 2020 is a six-month intensive workshop for intermediate to advanced author-illustrators. Attendees will learn how to complete a picture book dummy which includes two final illustrations for the same story. There are three meetings in 2020, which will be held in Center City Philadelphia at the Parkway Central Branch of the Free Library. The meeting dates are Saturday: January 4th, July 18th, and October 24th. Meetings run from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

 

At each meeting, there will be 1 to 2 faculty who will present about developing a picture book dummy and critique the attendees assignments.* The faculty will include industry professionals including an agent, published author-illustrator, editor, and an art director.

 

*Prior to each meeting, attendees will receive an assignment to complete before the next meeting. Illustrators will upload their assignments to a shared Dropbox folder approximately 3-4 weeks before the next meeting so the faculty can review their work and prepare comments. Faculty feedback is delivered orally at each meeting in an open format so all attendees can learn from the faculty each others critiques.

 

Because the six-month masterclass offers so much individualized feedback, registration is limited to 15 illustrators.

 

Registration: Members $420; Non-members $460.

 

Current SCBWI members who live in Eastern Pennsylvania will be considered first, but current members from other regions may also apply. Please note that if no applicants meet the requirements, EPA SCBWI reserves the right not to award scholarships for this event.

 

Our chapter wants to make sure all attendees registered for this event have the skills and tools necessary to complete the assignments for the Picture Book Masterclass 2020. The illustrators who attend EPA’s 2019 Digging Deep into the Picture Book Creation Process event will be given priority when registration opens.

 

CLASS IS NOW FULL.  CONTACT BERRIE TORGAN-RANDALL – EPA-IC@SCBWI IF YOU WANT TO BE PLACED ON THE WAITING LIST.
