2019 will mark the 27th annual Eastern PA SCBWI event in the Poconos. While we continue the tradition of a retreat style event in the northeastern part of the state, this year’s program will unfold in several new ways including increased critique opportunities, roundtable discussions, additional faculty, and member-led sessions. We look forward to sharing the new format with our members and friends, as well as announcing the terrific lineup of faculty we have in store for this year’s program.
Our 2019 theme, YOU HAD ME AT VOICE, will make your stories sing! Registration opens in February. Stay tuned!
