SCBWI Summer Social

I'm excited to announce this summer's southern Idaho/Utah SCBWI's picnic social. Its coming up in just a few weeks.

This is an opportunity to socialize with your fellow writers and illustrators. We'll also be talking about our favorite social media tips.

This is a free event. So, all you fellows itching to get out of your studios, dens, or converted oldest child's bedroom come!

You may notice that there is a BYOC policy (bring your own chair). That is only because this is a free event. So under no circumstance were we (the planning comity) allowed to rent a pavilion. Maybe next year we'll charge a couple dollars per person just so we can get that, O so coveted pavilion.

I hope to see you there!

Here's the link to the event on the scbwi website, just be forwarned that the information is not complete. 

Okay, okay. I admit it. The reason this information is out so late is because of me. Its all my fault. In March when I was going to make this flier I ended up illustrating a children's book instead. It was a supper tight deadline. And I was putting every spare minute into the book so that the publisher could get it printed in time for its September release. (which, by the way, is called 'A dinosaur goes to Church'. It was fun painting dinosaurs.)

So, if you're going to blame anyone. Blame ME.

Here is some additional information.

Don't forget to join us this Friday evening, July 12th, 6:30pm at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City for our fun and relaxed summer social. Since it's a big park, here are more detailed instructions on how to find us:

Enter Liberty Park from 13th South between 5th and 7th East, head along the one-way road to the pavilion at the north end of the park. Since pavilions are on a first-come, first-serve basis, if the pavilion is empty we'll set up there. If it's already taken, then we will be setting up our own shade tents to the west of the pavilion (the road curves to the west as well, so continue around the corner until you see us).

Also, don't forget to bring your own chair, your social networking tip on a small piece of paper (less than 50 words, please), and your potluck dish. Assignments are as follows:

YA writers bring a main dish MG writers bring a side dish PB writers bring dessert Illustrators bring chips/dips

Plates, napkins and utensils will be provided, as well as cold water. And this event is free to both SCBWI members and non-members, so bring all your writing/illustrating friends for a fun evening of socializing.

We'll see you there!
