A new source of information for children's book illustrators and writers

Click here to see the newsletter: www.wordsandpics.org

Words & Pictures is a free online newsletter packed full of information, interviews and competitions for children's book illustrators and writers. Non-published writers will find advice about how to get published and published authors will find career advice. Contributors include writers, illustrators, agents and editors.

It has been created by members of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (British Isles) but anyone can view it. Content is regularly updated so it is definitely worth subscribing.

To help celebrate the launch I created a webcomic - Duck&Bear - about a children's book writer and her friend who is an illustrator. Three of the five episodes have been uploaded. You can see it by clicking on the box "webcomic by Amanda Lillywhite" under the banner on the Words & Pictures newsletter or go direct to it by clicking here.
