Hi,

New to SCBWI and had reached out to https://beijing.scbwi.org/, but my email entered a black hole and nothing came back (seems it was last active in 2014).

Would be interested in meeting or at least speaking to other writers in China.

Look forward to hearing from whomever you may be!

Hi Kevin,

Here is the link to all the current SCBWI chapters. The international ones are in the second group below the USA ones. https://www.scbwi.org/regional-chapters/.
You might also try contacting the SCBWI office directly to ask who you can connect with. On that same page link, if you scroll down a little further you'll get the phone number and email for the SCBWI office.

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for the response! While I had looked at the link you had recommended, I missed the Hong Kong chapter. Will reach out to them. Appreciate that you got me to take another look! ;D

Also, Kevin, we had our IT admin fix your profile so it shows that you're an International Central member. It didn't show up automatically for [insert complicated software reason that has to do with the Beijing chapter not being active at this time].

If/when you connect with an active China group and your profile doesn't reflect that, let an admin know and we'll see what has to be done to make the right group show up.

Thanks,  Anne B! Didn't even know that was an option.  SCBWI does a great job helping those new to this  ;)

And have already made contact with the Hong Kong chapter.
