Welcome to the Houston chapter of SCBWI

If writing and/or illustrating for children is something you want to do, must do or have done, then SCBWI is for you.

Looking for a speaker for your library, classroom or organization? Here we are.

We're proud to be a part of the international writing organization – the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

With hundreds of local members, you will find the support, guidance and information you need to fulfill your dream of writing or illustrating for children. Our writers cover the gamut; fiction, non-fiction, magazine articles, plays, books for toddlers, middle-grade and young adults. Our illustrators never cease to amaze us with their works of art, turning words into pictures.

On the first Monday of every month we meet at the Tracy Gee Center (Go to Events/Calendar for details.) Please join us for the critique group at 6:00 pm and to hear our speaker at 7:00. Our meetings are a great way to network with other writers and illustrators.

2012 Conference – March 31st and April 1st, 2012 – Registration open.
Critiques with Connie Hsu, Pam Glauber and Kelly Sonnack are sold out.

Please check our Calendar for special workshops and conferences. These events offer great opportunities to hone your skills and market your work. We also have a two-way listserv that allows members to connect at any time. To join the listserv go to: groups.yahoo.com/group/scbwi-houston and click 'Join This Group'

Again, welcome to the Houston chapter of SCBWI. We look forward to seeing you!
