Jessica Lee Anderson (author, UNCERTAIN SUMMER), Jeff Crosby (illustrator, UNCERTAIN SUMMER), and Madeline Smoot (publisher of CBAY Books), join to discuss the publishing process and the author-editor/illustrator-editor relationship. Jessica, Jeff, and Madeline will speak about their unique individual paths, roles, and expectations, plus what is at the core of a solid working relationship. They will touch on ways to foster a positive author-editor/illustrator-editor relationship, and will give advice for authors or illustrators working with an editor for the first time or for those pursuing opportunities with a small press. They will also leave time to answer questions from the audience. 

The monthly meeting will be immediately followed by an Open Critique Group for SCBWI members.
