Need a holiday gift for yourself? Renew your SCBWI membership now, whether your renewal date is here or not. Dues for our international organization will be going up $10 as of Jan. 1, but you can renew now and save that increase; a year will be added to your membership, no matter when it expires.
What are you getting for your $70 a year? (or $85 if you haven't been a member and sign up fresh)? Here's a sampling:
- The new website at scbwi.org, which, if you haven't noticed, includes new features such as the ability to post reviews of your books, links to your favorite indie for sales, links to book trailer, and much more. They're working through the bugs of the launch, such as the one that put most of us in the Western Australia region (and hey, wasn't it fun to be in Australia for a while??)
- The always-great content of the quarterly Bulletin, which you can read online or get in your mailbox. Back issues are available online and searchable by topic.
- Discounts to the great stuff we do here in Western WA -- including, for instance, our preview of the brand new documentary about the making of The
Phantom Tollbooth on Thursday, Feb. 6.
There's more you can check out at scbwi.org. To renew, go to your profile and click the "Renew" option next to the date your membership expires (which is another new feature of the webite).
