What a Mingle is…
A Mingle is a gathering of children’s writers and illustrators designed to share knowledge, great news, and companionship. Generally, they are free activities offered by the SCBWI-Los Angeles Region.
A Mingle is a great place to meet local authors and illustrators – people like you who share your interests and goals. At a Mingle, you’ll have the chance to network, make friends, and get connected.
Though occasionally guest speakers are featured at Mingles, they are usually meetings that are structured around roundtable discussions about various topics of interest to children’s writers and illustrators.
…and what a Mingle isn’t
A Mingle is not a fix-it, nor is it a forum for critique, though critique groups can grow out of a Mingle.
Attend a Mingle in your area.
Most Mingles meet once per month, with summer and winter holiday breaks.
Check the Mingle Calendar for more information.
Would you like to start your own L.A. Mingle?
If you are interested in starting a Mingle in the Los Angeles region, please contact Karol Ruth Silverstein, “Mingle-Meister.” Specific areas in need are Glendale and Southern Los Angeles County.
FOR EVERYONE’S MAXIMUM ENJOYMENT WE REQUEST THAT CHILDREN NOT ATTEND MINGLES.
