This is in the Tennessee region of SCBWI but is a great opportunity for anybody who wants to make the trip or lives up that way...
Laurent Linn is coming to Nashville to conduct a special Illustrator Workshop! Mr. Linn is the beloved and kind Art Director from Simon & Schuster. We hosted him at a Midsouth Conference years ago and our Illustrators STILL talk about his invaluable input.
This is a GREAT opportunity for us. We ARE opening this up to other regions as well, so sign up early to assure your slot. Registration starts this Friday, March 9th.
The full description is on the Midsouth website: http://scbwi-midsouth.org/
