Call for NJSCBWI Conference Proposals



Interested in presenting at the NJ SCBWI Summer Conference?
June 3-4, 2017
Hyatt Regency New Brunswick, N.J.

We have limited spots available and are looking for workshop presenters who inspire, inform—and push the edge of learning for our attendees. As always we love to see workshops on idea generation, all aspects of the craft of writing or illustrating for advanced or beginner levels. We would also love to see more of the following:

  • PAL oriented workshops 
  • Specific craft related topics
  • Workshops on areas of diversity; writing/illustrating, research, etc.
  • Workshops featuring experts in fields for author research. Last year we had a great workshop featuring a crime scene detective who co-hosted with an author on how to write a crime scene into your novel.

(Please Note: Terms are non-negotiable so please read carefully and agree to before applying).

Deadline to submit a proposal : Sunday 11:59 p.m. January 29, 2017 (EST). No late proposals will be accepted.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Thanks for posting Kathy. Hope to see you at the conference.


  2. When does registration open for the conference? Thanks!


    • I haven’t heard anything. I think it went up at the end of March last year. Anyone reading this know? I’ll see Cathy next weekend and will ask.
