If you are an SCBWI member, you will receive member discounted pricing. Also, you will receive an email letting you know when registration opens-this is important as critique slots and intensives are available for registration on a limited-space basis, so you will want to register as soon as possible. If you have YAHOO as your email service, please take note if you are receiving monthly emails from us. If not, you may want to try a different email service as we have been running into a few hiccups with YAHOO.

If you are not a member, why not? Members enjoy invitations to free CONNECT events throughout the year. Furthermore, members receive discounted event pricing, early registration, access to Kite Tales publication, access to the national BULLETIN, and other benefits.
