Cincinnati September SCBWI Meeting: September 27, 7-8:30 pm, Madeira Branch Library (7200 Miami Ave)

This month we will be focusing on helping our fellow writers and illustrators. 1.) Please bring a craft book to share with the group that you find very helpful. 2.) Come with any burning questions you have about writing, illustrating, querying, finding an agent, etc. We have many very experienced members of our group who will be able to answer just about anything related to publishing.

Note: Our September meeting is at the Madeira Library, which has a large meeting room so we can spread out.
