SCBWI Texas: Austin

Welcome to SCBWI Texas: Austin!


We meet monthly and hold workshops and critique and networking opportunities throughout the year.

Join us January 13 at 10 am at BookPeople. This month we are starting the new year right by setting our goals. Madeline Smoot shares her tips for designing, executing, and scheduling your goals – no matter whether you're an author or illustrator. Bring your pen and paper and dreams. Let's level up this new year!

Our Header Designer

Our website header is designed each year by the winner of our Portfolio Showcase Contest at our conference. Our 2022/2023 header was illustrated by our 2022 winner, Naomi Canale.
