When you join SCBWI you automatically become a member of your local region. The SCBWI has over 80 regions around the world, each headed by volunteers. A Regional Advisor (RA) or two co-RAs run each region and larger regions may also have an Assistant Regional Advisor (ARA), Illustrator Coordinator (IC) and an advisory committee.

Your region is home to your local community of authors and illustrators. Through your region you can attend events, join critique groups and network with peers. As a member of SCBWI you are always welcome at any other region's events around the world. This means wherever you are, there will be fellow children's book writers and illustrators there to greet you!
