Level Up

SCBWI Oregon presents our new webinar series, Level Up, starting October 18th. At only $10 for premium members, this craft-based monthly series will focus on topics to improve your writing and illustrating. Every webinar will be recorded and available to view for one month.


Welcome to SCBWI Oregon!

Covering the state of Oregon, our region is led by Regional Advisor Laura Byrd, assisted by Illustrator Coordinator Robin Chilstrom and an Advisory Committee. As volunteers, our goal is to help our members learn their craft and grow as creators and kidlit enthusiasts.
