This and all other SCBWI Israel events are in English unless otherwise stated.
To complete your registration, you'll be redirected to a page where you can pay via PayPal.
Due to unexpected changes in the global SCBWI site, we are currently unable to accept registrations through the site since there is no way to collect payment. We are working on this with SCBWI HQ and expect to have a solution soon.
Meanwhile, registration via Google Form is fast and easy. We hope you'll join us despite this hiccup.
At this point, we only accept PayPal.
We are working with SCBWI HQ to provide other payment options in the very near future!
Great question! All our programs are charged in shekels (₪, nis), our local currency.
