treeWelcome to the SCBWI Oregon!

Headed by two Co-Regional Advisors, and Illustrator Coordinator, and a committee of volunteers, SCBWI Oregon offers a Spring Conference each May and a Retreat in the fall. We are constantly updating our Events page with new happenings. Some programs are aimed at specific groups within our membership, such as beginners, illustrators or PAL members, and others are open to everyone.

We have some upcoming EVENTS Go to the front page calendar or the Events page for more details. Check the Schmoozes, too!


We publish the bimonthly NewsWorthy which offers feature articles, interviews, information about local events, publishing tidbits, critique information, illustrations, and good news from our members. The current and previous issues are available to members at any time on the News page. Newsletter deadlines are: Jan. 30th, March 30th, May 30th, July 30th, Sept. 30th and Nov. 30th. Go to our Volunteers to see where to send your articles, illustrations, and good news.

The Co-RAs also send out a monthly communication, Cloudy with a Chance of Ideas, through the e-blast system. It is usually sent on the first Monday of the month. Issues are also saved under the News portion of our site. Also, if you haven't deleted them out of your personal messages on scbwi.org, Cloudys are there as well.

We have an SCBWI Oregon Facebook page, which often has reminders.

We're also on Twitter.
