How can we go look at the illustrations that were submitted?  Thanks.

Submitted to what? I'm not sure what you're asking. Can you give more info?

Some people may not have posted their submissions publicly, but for those who did on social media, search for the hashtag, #scbwidrawthis.

Here's the link for people who posted on Twitter:

Here's the link for Tumblr:

Thanks, Stephanie! I'd never even heard of this. Sorta seems like something I should have, though.  :eh2

Where do you find information about this? I went searching on the SCBWI site and found very circular references to it. You have to be a SCBWI member. Okay, I logged in. But I still didn't find anymore more than references. There was the page that said that this month's theme was: "See June insider." I did a search for "June insider" and found an article about submitting partial manuscripts to agents. ?? Is there a more direct way to find this information?

I think there was a mention in the last bulletin, when they said they were switching to an email bulletin + a few printed ones. Then I got an email about it, which was sent to illustrators. (Arty, you should be on that list! Rose, if you're illustrating now, you should be on that list too!)

If you have questions, the email said to send them to: scbwidrawthis (at) scbwi.org.

Oh gmail might have placed it in a promotions folder or something. I keep forgetting to check there. I'll look for it! Thanks Stephanie!!

ETA: found and forwarded, Rose!

I am confused about "Draw This" as well.  Is there someplace where all the submissions can be viewed besides Twitter and Tumblr?  It seems like they are posted in the "Insider" but I am new to SCBWI and not sure what this is.

Thanks, Arty! The e-mail you forwarded from your region was much more helpful than what I see on line. I did not get anything of the sort from my own region. I did get a general heads-up e-mail from SCBWI, saying that we will be getting a monthly Insider via e-mail, but that's it. I think I'll wait a few days and see if I actually get this Insider (since the first of the month is just around the corner), and if it's still confusing, I'll ask further.

Sara, I think they're going to send out the newsletter on Monday, which will hopefully have a link to the online gallery of all the art. Not sure though. This is the first time they're doing it.

Arty - you got an email from your region about it? The one I was talking about was from the SCBWI office and was instructions about the contest.

Rose - it is a bit confusing, isn't it? Hope it gets sorted out after the first issue goes live, or better yet, before they post it!

Yeah. Our RA is great about sending out anything he finds that might be of interest to the members. He sent us this link and all the same info in the body of the email.

I found it by putting 'draw this' in the search bar, but I don't see a direct link from the home page. I wonder if this could be addressed, as it is a wonderful way to get eyeballs on the art of members?
