Searching for Events

You may search for types of events by using the dropdown box below and choosing a category and clicking on Search. The page will only show you the events in that category you’ve chosen. Or you can search by any other parameter such as a specific location. Just type the specific location into the search box and click on Search. Similarly, you may sort by dates.

Paying for Events

We use an automated system to receive electronic payments for our events. The system allows you to safely use a debit or credit card online. If you absolutely do not want to pay electronically, register online for the event, then mail us a check asap. Make your check out to SCBWI Oregon and send it to:
SCBWI Oregon, 6031 NE Davis Street, Portland, OR 97213.
Your registration will be completed once we receive your check.

Policies and Permissions

Our anti-harassment statement, privacy policy, and permissions information for events can be found here. SCBWI has a zero-tolerance policy against harassment of any kind. Any violation of this policy is actionable.


We have a “no refunds” policy after a certain date prior to the event. (This date is announced for each event on the more info page for that particular event.) Sorry, no refunds on consultation or critique fees.

Book Sales at Events

At major events (conference, retreat) we offer a bookstore, and members not on faculty are allowed to sell one title. Here’s the downloadable form to use: SCBWI OREGON MEMBER Book Sales Form.docx or SCBWI OREGON MEMBER Book Sales Form.pdf.
