During the second session of the SCBWI Southern Breeze Developing Book Dummies Series in February 2021, our guest Ebony Glenn shared her expertise on Creating Compelling Page Turns. Ebony Glenn is an Atlanta based illustrator of Speak Up and Flying High: The Story of Simone Biles.

Ebony discussed how she developed the tone, rhythm, characters, and composition in her illustrations for Mommy’s Khimar. She shared how to use composition and color to create drama and tone in your spreads. You can learn more about Ebony’s work at

Southern Breeze will host Rob McClurken on March 13th, 3pm – 5pm EST as he shares key elements of query letters, and a faculty review of selected book dummies (first-come-first serve) for everyone to learn from.

The Developing Book Dummies series is a 3-month series designed to support writers and illustrators in creating a finished book dummy by the end of the series. Each month includes an assignment on moving the book dummies forward to the next step. Participants can join at any time and all recordings will be available until April 15th, 2021.
