“Poetry is the universal language which the heart holds with nature and itself.”

-William Hazlitt

I’m delighted to announce that every day in February, Eastern Penn Points Blog will feature artwork and/or poetry by Eastern PA SCBWI members. The theme is LOVE in any and every form!

This will be a special month for showing off our regional talent and spreading the word through social media.

You can submit poetry and/or art by yourself, or team up with another writer/artist to create something together. Create something warm and fuzzy, heartbreaking, cutesy, abstract, romantic, realistic, magical, anthropomorphic, hilarious, touching….the possibilities are endless! Let’s show our full range, since we represent those who write and illustrate for babies through teens.

A few little rules….

  1. All submissions must, of course, be your own work.
  2. Poetry must be limited to 500 words or less
  3. Submissions should be sent to Lindsay Bandy by Friday, January 23rd, 2015.
  4. You may include a giveaway with your submission, but this is totally optional. For example, if you are a PAL member, you might want to do a signed book giveaway to a random commenter, or offer a free online critique. If you are an artist, you may want to give away a signed original or print of your work. People like free stuff, and this can boost your engagement! You will be responsible for any postage, but I will randomly select winners and get their contact info to you.
  5. Include any social media info you’d like! You can also include a sentence about yourself.

E-mail your submissions or questions to Lindsay Bandy at, and join the fun!

  1. Is this blog open to someone who belongs to a neighboring SCBWI chapter, let’s say New Jersey?
