Illustrator’s Day (General Info)

Join us for a wonderful day on the San Francisco Bay to learn more about illustrating children’s books. Are you ready to be inspired? We’ll pick up new tips and tricks, not to mention hear the latest about the industry, meet and reunite with other children’s book illustrators, and – most of all – have some fun. Our portfolios will be viewed by art directors, editors, agents and award-winning illustrators. We will also have a First Look panel, a Q & A with local children’s literature experts, individual portfolio critiques, and inspiring presentations.

The San Francisco/South Illustrator Day is typically held in late September and registration begins in May. Notification for open registration is done strictly via this website and the NorCal SCBWI announcement list (see our Community page for how SCBWI members can join this list).
