Winter Three Track Illustrator Intensive

Illustrators will work with Art Director Aram Kim on either the specific assignment or a work-in-progress of their own in the weeks before and between the two zooms with the AD to discuss their work (sketches and then final art). During the intensive, completed assignments will be given final critique and next steps. > UPDATE: Assignment and Work-in-Progress spots are no longer available, but you can still register for the Basic Track and observe the zooms without showing work of your own. The two zooms will take place November 4th and January 20, 9-11am CT/10am-12 noon ET.

Midsouth Presents Critique-Palooza!

Have a manuscript critiqued by an industry professional this fall, and then in January attend a panel of editors, agents, and published authors as they discuss HOW to apply agent/editor feedback for revision! And if you're not interested in a critique at this time, you can stick with the basic Panel-only ticket. > UPDATE: Sorry, but all the critique spots have been SOLD OUT! But you CAN still register for Panel-only and observe. The online live panel will take place on January 20, 5-6pm CT/6-7pm ET.
