Shop Talk

Shop Talk

Checked out the regional meeting and want a deeper dive into the topic that was presented? Join us for Shop Talk to learn more about the topic, put new skills to use, and energize your creative process with topic-focused exercises.

Shop Talk is held via Zoom on the second or third Monday from 7 - 8 pm Central Time. We take a summer break, so these events run from September through May.

Don’t miss out on the original presentation tied to that month’s Shop Talk session! These happen during Monthly Regional Meetings.

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 Shop Talk Meeting Access page.
