Welcome to the Eastern NY Region of SCBWI!
Along with hosting two annual events - the Mid Hudson Conference, in Poughkeepsie, and the Falling Leaves Master Class Retreat in Silver Bay, on Lake George, we have a host of other activities to keep writers and illustrators in the publishing loop!
While writing and illustrating for children's books is often a solitary art, many SCBWI members enjoy getting together with like-minded individuals. Shop Talk is where such meetings begin.
Whether you want to hear the latest "inside scoop" on editors or you just want talk to others who understand what you're going through, attend a "Shop Talk" session near you. We have monthly meetings in the Capital District and the Mid Hudson areas. Members and non-members alike are welcome (unless otherwise noted below) and attendance is always free. Details can be found on our web site and in the regional calendar.
