‚ÄčWe are winding down, the SCBWI Carolinas equipment is stored on the shelves, the final checks written and mailed, the reports done and in to HQ.


Handouts for The Power Of Story conference on the handout page, well, all the handouts we were given. Any presentations that the faculty wanted to share are there also. All are in PDF format and downloadable.


One of the questions was how would the faculty member know that the submission was a result of this conference. And so we asked the faculty.  When submitting via email or USPS they may write in the header or on the envelope 2016 SCBWI CAROLINAS CONFERENCE


Jill Davis asked that we notify all participants that her job parameters have changed at HarperCollins and she is now interested, in addition to middle grade, in accepting submissions of picture books.  Her submission information remains the same.  

Correction to the Submission Guidelines:
