Upcoming SCBWI WWA Meetings and Network Events!

Northern Network

In the Beginning...

First impressions count, both in meeting new people, and for our readers who are meeting our books. This month we’ll look at crafting strong story beginnings. What are some ways we can hook our readers (and editors!) from the very first page, inviting them into investing their time in our stories?

Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 7:00 p.m. at The Bellingham Barnes & Noble (4099 Meridian Street)
Questions? Email Rebecca at rebecca_vanslyke@hotmail.com.

Critique Group Road Show

Are you looking for a critique group to help you get your writing to the next level? We’ve got you covered! The Critique Group Road Show is back with two spring dates:

March 28, 6-9pm, Spotted Cow, Mill Creek (15118 Main St #700, Mill Creek, WA 98012)

April 18, 7-10pm, Southcenter DoubleTree (16500 Southcenter Pkwy, Seattle, WA 98188)

These meetings are free of charge and will give you a chance to try out Mark & Donna’s recipe for critique group success. Come meet other SCBWI members looking for critique groups. Bring 10 paper copies of your first chapter, and come ready to read and critique with your peers!
