Important reminders

If you are published under a pseudonym, please provide that information to SCBWI when you join, or update your membership information to include your pseudonym. It makes it much easier for us to identify you and link you with your books.

The SCBWI International website provides a wealth of information: Monthly contests, chat boards, opportunities, connections. Be sure to make full use of it!
