Hi, all! I'm Jac (or TheBrassGlass), an aspiring illustrator from Connecticut. I'm such a hodge-podge; I've been working about 12+ years in publishing as an editor, starting with a small independent book publisher and then shifting into journalism, and also worked for a few years as a newspaper cartoonist. Just joined SCBWI after a recent New England virtual meet and greet, because I was so impressed and heartened by how supportive you all are of one another and hearing about so many wonderful projects was awesome! My art took a backseat to my writing and editing for so long, I've only just started letting it emerge from the shadows. Hope to network and learn as much as I can, and teach what I can. So excited to be a member!  :hearts
