Welcome to the San Diego Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
Our chapter covers the San Diego region and is one of the most active chapters in the country. Members come from a variety of backgrounds and range in experience from those new to children’s writing or illustrating to authors and illustrators with numerous published titles.
We meet the second Saturday of the month from September through May at the University of San Diego’s Hahn School of Nursing Room 106 from 2-4 p.m.
Monthly meetings feature a speaker on writing/illustrating and have time for chapter business, member announcements and networking. Some of our speakers are local; others are brought in from out of town. Every meeting is planned to further the development of our members' careers. Suggestions of topics and speakers are always welcome. For more information on this year’s program see www.sandiego-scbwi.org
Meetings are open to both SCBWI members and nonmembers. Cost: $7 for SCBWI members, $9 for nonmembers
Season Tickets offer discounted admission to all meetings and include a subscription to our Chapter newsletter, The Sand Castle Legends newsletter
In addition to our monthly chapter meetings, we host workshops and conferences and help link members together into critique groups.
