SCBWI In Dominican Republic
« on: March 18, 2014, 06:39 PM »
Hi,

Just inquiring if any members live in the DR.  I am a British Expat and SCBWI member living in Sosua on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and would love to meet other members, if any, who live here.

This would be a great place for a Caribbean SCBWI Convention, hint, hint ;)

I'm not in DR, but just wanted to say welcome. Your "stars" under your blue board name indicate your region as Florida (wasn't sure if you realized that). It looks like DR would be in the Carribean North region (website here: http://caribbeannorth.scbwi.org/). The regional advisor would be able to tell you if there are any other members in your area and about local meet-up opportunities.


Cheers!

Hi Elisabeth,

My billing address is a mail service in Miami as the Dominican postal service is very unreliable.  I have emailed the Caribbean North regional adviser but have received no response yet.  It seems I'm all on my lonesome over here :)
