Postcard & Query Party

You’re invited to a gathering of Central and Southern Ohio SCBWI illustrators and authors to address postcards to art directors, agents, editors and publishers OR gather addresses for your queries* to agents and editors.


Illustrators will need to have ordered your postcards of your illustrations by the party. A suggestion would be to use your illustrations from the 2017 Notecard Contest, or anything from your portfolio. (Vistaprint is a good resource for your bulk orders).


There’s no need to RSVP for this event; just come anytime during the party hours! Bring any addresses of art directors, agents, editors and publishers accepting post cards and queries to share with other members (if you have them). We will have “The Book” and other resources available in pdf to browse, too.


Where: Upper Arlington Public Library, Meeting Room B


When: Monday, May 21st, 2018 at 6pm- 8:30pm.

-We plan on going out for drinks after if you can join us!



-To help each other promote our illustrations or motivate us to send those query letters!
