Ozark Writers and Illustrators For Children is a non-profit
group in Springfield, Missouri. We produce novels, nonfiction, articles,
and short stories. We discuss markets, trends, publicity, queries, and
all aspects of our craft. We meet the first Saturday of every month
at the Library Station, 2535 N Kansas Expressway in Springfield
from 9-11 a.m. A critique session follows at approximately 11:30.
Rich Davis, speaker for June 5th:
Rich Davis is a children's book illustrator with 9 books. He is a free lance illustrator, drawing instructor, drawing game inventor and speaks at public schools and libraries.
Rich:I am excited to meet all you creative folks and to enjoy some time encouraging one another. I have noticed writers "think" in pictures just like artists...the way we say it is the only difference. So it is very very easy and enjoyable to track with creative ideas and language. This will be fun!
There is a $10.00 donation request to help cover Mr. Davis' expenses. Mr. Davis has marketed a wonderful game, Pick and Draw, that will be given to everyone that pays the $10.00.
Coffee and snacks will be provided. We will meet in the Story Room at The Library Station 9:00 to 11:00. A critique session will follow.
