Welcome to SCBWI Canada East

Established in 1997, SCBWI Canada split into two regional chapters in 2004. SCBWI Canada East serves members in Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Nunavut, Quebec, and Ontario. Connect with us at an event, or through our listserv, online critique groups, and blog.



Registration is now open

Art of Story 2020 — Distance Critiques

To view our distance critique faculty and to register, visit our event page.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, like so many other organizations, we have come to the conclusion that we must cancel this event. We will still offer distance critiques, for those who want, and we plan to reschedule the conference at some point in the future.

Registration is now open!

Art of Story 2020

Ottawa, April 24-26, 2020

Join the SCBWI Canada East LISTSERV!


This the best way to talk directly to other members of the chapter, and to stay on top of what's going on. Because email from SCBWI does not always reach our members reliably, the listserv offers another avenue for the admin team to announce events and other offerings of interest to our members.

Looking for expert help to polish your manuscript before submission?
