A Spring Conference, Imagine That!

Registration is live for Imagine That!, our SCBWI Western Washington 2019 Conference.

This 2-day event will take place May 18-19, 2019, at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington.

This year’s event consists of a full day of conference programming, including keynote speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions, and optional add-on Sunday activities, including Master Classes & Roundtable Critiques. Attendees may register for Saturday as a stand-alone, or for both Saturday and Sunday events. While Sunday activities offer a potential full day of programming, you may only register for one roundtable critique. These critiques fill on a first-come, first-served basis, and will fill quickly, so register today!
​This 2-day event provides tremendous opportunities for growing your career as a writer and/or illustrator for children. Learn from esteemed literary professionals—agents as well as editors and art directors, from major publishing houses—in addition to award-winning authors and illustrators.

Watch the blog over the next couple of weeks for fun faculty interviews and tips and hints about how to maximize your conference experience!
