"A Story is a Question, Not an Answer." - Richard Peck, from the SCBWI Vault

This is truly something to celebrate. For more than 40 years, SCBWI has hosted some of the most brilliant writers and illustrators, editors, agents, publishers, and other industry pros creating work for children and teens, and now there's a new YouTube channel where you can see moments of their brilliance from the past, today.

Like this amazing under-four minute video of the late multi-award winning author Richard Peck, recorded in 2001:

and this inspiration from multi-award winning illustrator (and sometimes author) Vanessa Brantley-Newton, recorded in 2017:


 "Shake it off, Pack it under." That's how you deal with adversity!

 Vaults are generally filled with gold. With fine wine. With treasure.

And these moments are treasure. With new material every Tuesday and Thursday, the SCBWI Vault is well-worth subscribing to on YouTube!

Illustrate and Write On,
