SCBWI Podcasts: A Great Educational Opportunity for Members

Podcast boxVery few of us can afford to attend all the great conferences out there, but the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) has another great benefit free to members — a series of educational pod casts.  So far there are four SCBWI Conversations posted.

Episode 1: Melissa Manlove

SCBWI talks with Chronicle Books editor Melissa Manlove about picture books, mythology, poetry and the power of the spoken word.  Curious about the life and work of a picture book editor?  That’s in here too!


Episode 2: Matt de la Peña

I heard Matt speak at our own Missouri conference so I’m eager to hear this Conversation with the author the young adult novels Ball Don’t Lie, Mexican White Boy, We Were Here, I Will Save You, and The Living.

Episode 3: Arthur A. Levine

In this conversation, Lin Oliver talks with the vice president and publisher of Arthur A. Levine Books, an Imprint of Scholastic Inc.  This one is sure to be exciting because Levine has connected with several of his authors through SCBWI.


Episode 4: Laurie Halse Anderson 

Join this New York Times best-selling children’s book author as she discusses her writing path and diversity in chlidren’s literature.  She is the author of Speak and Chains, both National Book Award finalists.
