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.

Wow oh wow, this book is so special, and so lovely, and so dear. This book is a gift to the world. In Prince and the Dressmaker, we meet Prince Sebastian of Paris, who is working hard to uphold a good image for the kingdom with a lot of weight on his shoulders. And part of that weight is his biggest secret: at night, he dresses in stunning gowns and becomes Lady Crystallia, a Parisian icon of fashion and beauty! Not a soul knows Sebastian’s secret, until the palace’s new dressmaker Frances discovers his secret, and the two become best friends, working together to create more and more stunning dresses and looks for Lady Crystallia, until this secret begins to conflict with Frances’ dream of becoming a world-renowned dressmaker... This book is gorgeously drawn and fantastically written, a story of love, friendship, and most of all, being true to yourself. This book is an absolute fairytale!
