You don't need to be a published author or illustrator to join the SCBWI. Long-time members and new friends are always welcome. Our monthly open meetings are a great place to discover what's happening in our own backyard. It's a place where we share tips and tricks about writing, illustrating, revision techniques, submission do's and don'ts and much more. It's also a place to share what's inspired you this month or even what's getting in the way of finishing that project you used to love but which now sits untouched on your desk. Just as important, we're also a community. SCBWI members understand the challenges of trying to write and illustrate for the modern children's book market.
Our SCBWI in the Netherlands is a regional chapter of the international SCBWI and a doorway to a even larger world of information and advice.
