Submissions are now closed.  The deadline to submit your manuscript was February 12, 2021. 


Registered conference attendees who are SCBWI members can post up to 500 words of ONE children’s book manuscript, PB text, PB dummy or manuscript synopsis to our online manuscript gallery. Over a hundred editors and agents will be invited to peruse the gallery starting on February 19, 2021. These agents and editors will then reach out to authors whose work is a good fit for their lists. This is a fantastic opportunity to get your work in front of industry professionals!


To help the editors and agents find the stories they are most interested in acquiring or representing, each author is required to submit a 75-word logline for their story to go along with their 500 words. For instructions on how to create a logline, please read the article Preparing for Online Pitch Contests: How to Write a Killer Logline”.
