Just created a quickie video showing how to use Tweetdeck to follow a Twitter chat like #SCBWIArtists at #SCBWISummerSpec (example just uses a browser https://t.co/KDt1BetKdH
). Once you create column, it should automatically update as new tweets are posted.
REMINDER: Writers and Illustrators couldn't reach readers without those helping us get there. It takes a beautiful, children's book village 🌷 Thank you, editors! #SCBWISummerSpec https://t.co/3gfZAspCiy
I'm David, an illustrator (and occasional author) from Singapore. Whenever I'm not illustrating I build tiny worlds in desk drawers, empty milk jugs and old cartons...

Still working through the SCBWI Illustrator Showcase - have to shout out this small but impressive portfolio. Not sure if Jenin Mohammed is on twitter - but definitely a #BIPOC #illustrator to watch. #scbwisummerspec #scbwiartists
"I publish books I love and books my 6 or 7 year-old self would have loved." - Neal Porter
Love Namarata Tripathi speaking about finding stories that don’t just showcase new voices but destroy out of date ideas. #scbwi #SCBWISummerSpec
Editor Stacey Barnes broke down her thought process about acquiring new talent in a practical and logical way. I can see that she was an excellent teacher before she began working in publishing. Editor panel is always worth it's weight in gold! #SCBWISummerSpec https://t.co/4C69TQvRgU
So much great advice from the #SCBWISummerSpec Editors Panel!
If you aren't able to watch live, conference attendees will be able to view a recording of this session for one month, starting tomorrow. https://t.co/ihQODnOCGF
#SCBWISummerSpec Goosebumps listening to Namrata Tripathi at Kokila ♥️🙏🏾♥️
Love the @KokilaBooks @Tweetpathi
focus on creating good and destroying harmful narratives and images. #SCBWISummerSpec
So many people love to only work with author/illustrators, but @NealPorterBooks
takes great joy in matching authors and illustrators. #SCBWISummerSpec
So inspired by Namrata and her work. @literaticathad had her on the podcast last year. Fantasticepisode.
"The heart of the book is a way the writer's heart and reader's heart reach out to connect." - @jillsantopolo Editors Panel #SCBWISummerSpec
#SCBWISummerSpec I am so touched by how thoughtful @Tweetpathi
is at picking and fighting to represent the books that she could make the biggest difference.
"Your manuscript has to speak for you."--Julie Strauss-Gabel.
And it needs to speak for you as it's held by many hands for a long, long time.
“It’s a gut feeling. How much do I want this book published?” - Arthur Levine @LevineQuerido
Filling my @WishingTreeBook
cart with the wonderful books I'm discovering at #SCBWISummerSpec!
It’s really interesting finding out how “Anti Racist Baby” came about. #SCBWISummerSpec
Loved what @JillSantopolo
said in the editors panel - “The writer’s heart touches the reader’s heart.” Striving for that special connection! Showing readers they can transform challenges into something good. #SCBWISummerSpec #scbwi
Is this how all illustrators listen to the editor’s panel?🤷♀️ #scbwi #SCBWIArtists #SCBWISummerSpec https://t.co/T9sC7dGxKr
fighting for projects with a personal sentiment/story narrative is something we can all relate to @KokilaBooks
#SCBWISummerSpec presenter @tweetpathi :
All of our books are creative but they are also in a way destructive.
...There are narratives that have persisted that are harmful and we no longer have use for them...our stories attack an old narrative or turn our backs to them.
