SCBWI is looking for a coordinator to help plan the 2015 Illustrator Day, which is tentatively set for Sept or Oct. If you are interested, please contact Sarah Laurenson, SCBWI LA's co-regional advisor, at sarah.laurenson@gmail.com.

SCBWI is also looking for a published/listed illustrator to be the illustrator representative for the Published and Listed (PAL) group. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Robert Mellette at mellette@earthlink.net.

Our next Schmooze is our holiday gathering Wine and Chocolate Party on Thurs., Dec. 18. 6:30-8:30 at the Wine Cave in Montrose. It's Sketch Book Night so bring your sketches/writing and chocolate to share! We will have good munchies and great chocolate.

Starting in January, we will meet on the second Thursday of the month, so that we don't conflict with our friends at the Hollywood Schmooze. We're still at the wonderful Once Upon a Time bookstore at 6:30-8pm.

For those of you on FB, our group has a page, SFV Glendale Illustrators/Writers Schmooze. Please check it out and "like" us. https://www.facebook.com/GlendaleIllustrators?fref=nf
