9th Annual Art & Writing Contest

SCBWI Carolinas seeks to provide numerous opportunities, from conferences and retreats to webinars and mentoring programs, for our members who seek to improve the art and craft of writing or illustrating. With that in mind, each year SCBWI Carolinas sponsors a free event for those SCBWI Members who are on the Carolinas Regional Roster,  providing feedback to those who submit either a writing sample or an illustration sample to our annual contests.
