Illustrator and Author, Mara Price

SCBWI is a national organization specifically for children's book authors and illustrators. With members in all 50 states, plus many area chapters in each state, dedicated to the craft of writing and illustrating books for children from picture books through young adult fiction and nonfiction. The organization is a great resource not only for published authors and illustrators, but for those who want to learn to write and/or illustrate for children.

They feature two conferences each year, one in New York in the winter and one in Los Angeles in the summer.

Mara Price is a member I recently met through that organization. I love her colorful illustrations. Her forthcoming bilingual picture book (illustrated by Lisa Fields) will be released soon by Arte Público Press/Piñata Books.
