Q. Where can I meet kidlit/YA writers and illustrators?

MEETING OTHER CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITERS & ILLUSTRATORS IN PERSON:

- Join CANSCAIP (Canadian) or the SCBWI (Canadian and U.S.). Look for local chapters. Attend conferences.

MEETING OTHER CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITERS & ILLUSTRATORS ONLINE:

- There are many kidlit/YA types on Twitter, Google+, Facebook and other social media communities. Just do a search for terms like "kidlit" or "picture books" or "YA writer."

- There are also many excellent online writing communities. Some are specifically for children's book writers and illustrators while others are general writing communities with sub-message boards for specific genres and ages.

Just a few:

Verla Kay's Message Boards For Children's Writers & Illustrators (also known as the "Blue Boards" and are now part of the SCBWI website)

Absolute Write Forums

YA LitChat

Writer's Digest message forums
