Call for Blog Submissions: Personal Journeys!

We Want to Hear from YOU!

The EasternPennPoints blog is always open to submissions from our members. If you’d like to share a part of your writing or illustrating journey online, we’re happy to feature it on our blog and repost it on our social media platforms to share with our members and followers.

Got some advice for other creators? Send it our way! Want to share a “How I Got My Agent/Book Deal” story? Hit us up! Feel like boosting a fellow Eastern PA SCBWI member’s accomplishment? Conduct an interview with them and we’ll post it here! Our aim is to educate others by sharing learning experiences, advice, resources, and tips related to the creation and business of children’s and YA books.

Contributing to our blog can be a one-time thing or a regular occurrence. And since SCBWI is a global organization well recognized in the publishing industry, contributing to our regional blog can be a great item to include in a query letter bio if you’re looking to fill it out with industry-related accomplishments.
