Is there a place for SCBWI members to advertise their business? Basically to let their fellow members thier business exists.

Advertising is allowed on the Blueboard only under very restricted circumstances; our goal is to keep this a community, not an ad venue. From the Blueboard Rules (

6.  No Advertising of a Business unless you have been a member in good standing for at least two years with at least 100 posts AND have gotten permission to post your message/s with one of the Administrators of this board.

NOTE:This rule does not apply to SCBWI Regional Advisors. They have a special board in the SCBWI Only area of the board where they are allowed to freely advertise their services to other SCBWI members.

This forum doesn't exist to provide free ad space--it's here for people with a serious interest in writing and illustrating children's books and literature. Nor can the Administrators check out each business that wants to advertise here and make sure it's legitimate.  Therefore, only people who have been members here (in good standing) for at least two years may advertise their services on this board, and only with the approval of Verla or an administrator; we also reserve the right to ask you to edit such posts.  Please note that approval will in no way be considered an endorsement of such services. We will not endorse any services offered by any members of this forum.

Advertising goods and services in the SCBWI areas is also restricted. SCBWI members may advertise if:
1. You have been either an SCBWI member or a Blueboard member for at least two years AND
2. You have made at least a hundred (100) contributory posts (i.e., posts that contribute substance to conversations, not just offer congratulations or say "me too!") AND
3. You have received permission from an Administrator.

Advertisements of any kind made by members who do not meet these criteria will be removed without notice.  Thank you for helping keep the Blueboards a supportive, informational, spam-free place!

For members who qualify: please keep your posts advertising your services short.  We prefer you post a link to your webpage rather than including all details here, and request that you PM Verla or an Administrator before posting.
