Want to know what’s happening in the region, including sneak peeks at events that haven’t yet been advertised? Want a bit of face time with the Nebraska Regional Advisor and Illustrator Coordinator? Want to learn from some amazing speakers?
Join us for monthly regional meetings for all of the above! We’ll start each meeting with a brief overview of upcoming events, answer any questions, then host a speaker who will dazzle you with their expertise on that month’s topic.
Meetings are held via Zoom on the first or second Sunday from 4 - 5 pm Central Time. We take a summer break, so meetings run from September through May.
Want a deeper dive into that month’s topic? Join us for Shop Talk, which will take the information from that month’s meeting and put it to use in a hands-on session.
To join, you must be a premium SCBWI member. Meetings are geared towards Nebraska members, but you may join us if you live in another region. The Zoom link is available on the Meeting Access page.
