SCBWI Bologna 2023



SCBWI will be attending the Bologna Book Fair in 2023 to support our writers, illustrators, and translators from around the globe. Though we will not have a booth this year, SCBWI will participate in the event by hosting:

– a meeting room for SCBWI members to meet and mingle

– free manuscript and portfolio reviews

– the return of the popular Dueling Illustrators live session

– a VIP party for industry professionals and SCBWI members

More details coming soon!


In the meantime, submissions are now open for the Bologna Scholarship, which offers two SCBWI illustrators free tuition, travel, and accommodations to attend the Bologna Book Fair in 2023.

Submissions are open until December 22. CLICK HERE to apply.
