Society of
Children's Book Writers
and Illustrators


In-person events have returned. And our virtual events are expanding. Read on!

Local get-togethers and sketch & scrawls will once again be held in person in various spots across our region. For a list of local groups, please consult our Get-togethers page.

What is a sketch & scrawl? Think “pub crawl” for a group of illustrators and writers, but swap out the pub for a variety of outdoor locations. The idea is to meet other SCBWI members, sketch pad and drawing tools in hand, to chat and draw and write in an interesting spot outdoors.

Online, we will continue to offer our popular Digging Deeper webinar series, as well as a number of online get-together opportunities: the bimonthly Illustrators' Online Get-Together welcomes illustrators and illustration enthusiasts from across our region, and our online get-togethers continue with the Canada East Online Get-Together and our new French-language get-together Canada East Online Get-Together (French). The online get-togethers are hosted by members of our regional team and are open to all members but will be of particular interest to those who do not have access to in-person get-togethers in their area.

Stayed tuned for information on the return of Art of Story, our annual in-person conference.

For announcements of upcoming events, keep an eye on this page, stay tuned to The Exchange (our Google Group) and our Facebook page, and be sure to read our monthly newsletter, Quick Notes.
