In time, I plan to fill this page with links to sources I consider valuable. Here are just a few to get started:
Writing and Illustrating – hosted by Kathy Temean. This very popular blog is filled with invaluable information and resources offered by Kathy, one of the most intelligent, knowledgeable people involved in the KidLit world. She served as a groundbreaking Regional Advisor for the New Jersey Chapter of the SCBWI and is filled with a wealth of information as big as her heart. One of her many features is Illustrator Saturday. Here you will find hundreds of illustrators and their work showcased, along with telling interviews. It is NOT to be missed!
Let’s Get Busy Podcasts with host Matthew Winner – if you love KidLit and want to know more about the authors, illustrators and other heavy hitters throughout the KidLit community, you are sure to enjoy these amazing podcasts!
Simply Messing About – a mind-boggling resource created by illustrators Christina Forshay, Laura Zarrin, Tracy Bishop, and Renee Kurilla, generously offering invaluable information all to do with illustration…and a bit about writing, too 🙂
Susanna Leonard Hill — I was first introduced to this AMAZING blog through my friend, Lauri Meyers, and have been grateful ever since! Susanna Leonard Hill is a humorous, gifted children’s book author whose generous spirit comes through on every page and in every post on her blog. She has built an online home filled with craft, contests (for illustrators, too!), writing tips and more, having created an extremely supportive online community.
Many more to come…
