  • This wonderful series is returning. This year, however, we will be charging for the event—sorry, we can’t continue to give it to you free. But here are your options: 1. Purchase a Member Pass for $35 for the pass (nonmembers $50), which gives you all 7 sessions... (This option will only be available for a couple months.)  2. Preregister for each TNL event, $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers. 3. Register at the door and pay $10 for members and $12 for nonmembers. Ready to bring your writing and illustration skills to The Next Level? Whether you're plotting a novel or perfecting a picture book, SCBWI Oregon’s professional series will give you tools to advance your career.   Our first TNL is on September 20th and will feature April Henry.

Join us on the third Saturday of each month at Tabor Space on 5441 SE Belmont, and learn how to take your work to The Next Level. Doors open at 2:00 pm, and speakers start at 2:30. Every 3rd Saturday through April 2015 except for December
