I Joined SCBWI!

This will be a short post today.  It's my birthday!

Assuming I did everything correctly, you might have seen the new SCBWI logo on my blog's sidebar. (I'm still playing around with the positioning) As a birthday present to myself, I ponied up the money to join the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) . My critique partner, Sherahart, has been recommending this for a while, so I used my birthday as an excuse and joined. I signed up only yesterday, but being a part of SCBWI already makes me feel more like a real writer. :)

I signed up for the Michigan listserv, so if there’s anyone else from Michigan reading this post, be sure to drop me a line. Actually, if you’re in SCBWI and not from Michigan, send me a message anyway. I’d love to hear from you.

Back to planning my next birthday present.


  1. Good for you!! Put that birthday to use.

  2. I loooooove SCBWI... They're *such* an amazing organization! I've gone to 3 conferences in the last year.. Yeah, SCBWI rocks. :-D

    1. I can't wait. I've already received my packet through the mail and I night already have found a local critique group.
