In case any one is interested, the New Jersey SCBWI chapter is hosting its very first annual Illustrator Day at the Theological Seminary in Princeton on November 9, 2008. I am the Illustrator co-ordinator for the day and — seeing as we all here are wanting to illustrate for children's books — I thought you might like to know about it. if you would like more details I'd be happy to add you to the mailing list, just e-mail me leeza(at)leezaworks(dot)com. I'll be sending out the e-flyer toward the end of August.
Thanks and Lin, I hope it's okay to post this here!
