SCBWI: Write This!

scbwiWrite This! Guidelines

Write This! is a monthly prompt for writers appearing in the monthly SCBWI INSIGHT.

The first 500 entries for Write This! will appear in a special online gallery so agents, editors, and your colleagues have yet another way of hearing your writing voice. A link to the gallery will be provided in the next issue of INSIGHT sent out on the first of each month.

The July 2015 Write This! prompt is: Write a description of a children’s book character using no more than fifty words. The prompt word is WART. Have fun!

Deadline for Write This! is the 20th of June. The earlier you submit the better. Again, only the first 500 entries will appear on the gallery.


You must be a current SCBWI member to submit to Write This!

Entries must be inspired by the prompt word in some way.

Please no italics or bold fonts. 12 point text size.

E-mail subject line must be titled as follows: Prompt word_First name_Last name.

Each member may only submit one entry per prompt word.

E-mail your entry IN THE BODY OF THE E-MAIL, please no attachments to:

**Failure to follow these guidelines will result in exclusion from the online gallery. For questions, write to

**Due to the high number of submissions, only the first 500 entries will be included in the gallery. We cannot send a confirmation email for every submission.

**SCBWI reserves the right to exclude any entry deemed inappropriate.

TIP: Tweet, Facebook and Instagram your submissions! #scbwiwritethis

(this is not how you submit your writing, it’s just an extra way to promote your work)

TIP: Once the gallery is live each month, find your entry and write your website or blog address in the comment section so readers can get in touch with you.


Talk tomorrow,
