Welcome to SCBWI Western Washington!
Welcome to the Western Washington region of the Society for Children’s Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI)! Membership in SCBWI can enhance your career in writing and/or illustrating for children. Our region can help you, as an SCBWI member, connect with other regional members, promote your work via member web links and on our blog, and take advantage of our regional events throughout the year (conferences, retreats, workshops, master classes, etc.).
SCBWI has a brand new look! The scbwi.org site has been redesigned with a new look and more great features. One of those features is a set of regional pages. Those pages will replace all separate regional websites so you'll be able to get all your SCBWI news & information in one place.
By the end of 2013, this website will go away and you'll be able to get all the same information on our region on the Western Washington page of SCBWI.org. In fact, you can go there now. Check it out!
Join us for a special edition of our December meeting on Thursday, December 12, from 6 to 9 p.m. We'll be gathering in downtown Seattle at the Washington State Convention Center, Level 2, South Galleria.
This is not only our annual holiday-themed meeting, but also a celebration of the fabulous collection of work by our local illustrators that is currently on view there.
Kid Lit Drink Nights: Irregularly scheduled, but these are fun and a great way to connect with your Kid Lit community and refine your conference networking skills! Alcohol consumption not required. Keep an eye on our blog or Facebook page for dates.
