More details on the Saturday Night (post-Gala) Socials at #NY13SCBWI

Here's the latest scoop on the three different organized socials after Saturday night's Gala on February 2, 2013, that will run from 7:45pm - 8:45pm in the conference hotel:

The Illustrators' Social

After the Saturday Night Gala, come to the Illustrators’ Social to meet fellow illustrators, share your insights about the conference and to give us your feedback!

Hosted by the SCBWI Illustrators’ Committee: Priscilla Burris, Pat Cummings, David Diaz, EB Lewis, and Cecilia Yung.


At SCBWI’s 2008 Summer Conference in Los Angeles, a group of editors, agents, and authors interested in LGBTQ publishing met informally to chat about the submission process, who is interested and what types of stories they are interested in. We’ve continued this conversation at each conference since.

Maybe you’ve written a book about or for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming or questioning youth; maybe you’re interested in doing so, and you’re just not sure where to begin; maybe you are just curious to learn more about this vital corner of the market for young readers. Whatever your interest in the subject matter, all are welcome. Bring a friend and any questions you may have.

The event is hosted by SCBWI Team Blog’s Lee Wind (your blog host here) and features special guest Jane Yolen, author of almost 300 books for children and teens. For more information on Jane and her incredible and inclusive books visit

The New Members or First Time Attendees Social

If you are new to the SCBWI, or if this is your first conference, come to this social and make friends. One of the benefit of SCBWI is participating in our warm and inclusive community, so take this opportunity to dive in.

It’s held after the Saturday Night Gala, and hosted by several of the friendliest SCBWI Regional Advisors you’d ever hope to meet! Join the tribe, become part of us!

Each of these socials should be amazing!  

And while the Friday Intensives are sold out, there are a limited number of spaces still available for the Saturday and Sunday of the 2013 SCBWI Winter Conference.  You can find out more details and register here.

Illustrate and Write On,
