Welcome to the SCBWI Long Island Chapter!



There are two Tribute Fund scholarships for the SCBWI New York conference up for grabs, and we are invited to nominate four people from our region for consideration. If you are interested in this scholarship and could not otherwise afford to attend the conference, please reply to this e-mail with either:

- a complete picture book manuscript


—a first chapter of a MG or YA novel (or up to ten pages, if your chapter is shorter) 


-  for illustrators

- a picture book dummy as a pdf along with a picture book manuscript

or 3-4 jpgs of your most recent work along with a link to a digital portfolio 

PLUS your bio, an explanation of where your career is, and why you think attending this conference could benefit your career.

Please reply as quickly as possible, and no later than September 1—as we must nominate by September 15.

Please make sure that should you be selected as a recipient, you will be able to attend the conference in New York City, February 2-4, 2018.

For more information you can go to http://www.scbwi.org/awards/tribute-fund/

We look forward to reviewing your work!
