Donations Needed for our Annual Pocono Retreat Silent Auction, by Erik Ammon

donations boxLast year, together, our silent auction raised enough money for two full scholarships for people to come to the Eastern PA SCBWI Annual Pocono Retreat. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and to everyone who bid! Your generosity will allow two promising writers or illustrators to join us in April with no registration or room and board fee.

This year, I want us to raise enough money for three scholarships for next year’s event! I know we can because TOGETHER WE CAN.


We are seeking donations from members and attendees for this year’s silent auction, which will be held at the Pocono Retreat. What we’re looking for:

  • Writing and illustrating implements or care packages (pens, pencils, journals, paper, brushes, paints, bags, cases, etc.)
  • Books or artwork from our author and illustrator members
  • Professional critiques or consultations for writing or illustrating
  • Books related to the craft of writing and illustrating
  • Handmade crafts
  • Tickets or passes to popular museums or sporting events
  • Children’s book-themed goodies (games, collectibles, etc.)
  • Anything else you can think of!

If you would like to donate, please e-mail me, Erik Ammon, at In your e-mail let me know what you’re donating, a brief description, and an approximate value. If you’re offering a critique or other services, please let me know how the winner should contact you.

Thank you so much!

Let’s get THREE!

    I have a ‘Cozy Corner” box already in the works
    and Katie will see if the DaVinci Center will offer something, hopefully tickets.

    Do Well. Do Good.
