SCBWI Central-Coastal California has set a date for Writers’ Day 2021. Please mark your calendars for Saturday, October 30.

This year’s Writers’ Day will be in two parts. The first will be in-person at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks with spotlight speakers. A featured guest will also speak on this day. The writing contest recipients will be announced and critiques distributed at this half-day event.

Spotlight speakers include:

Janie Emaus, author of Latkes for Santa Claus.

Kristen Nordstrom, author of Mimic Makers: Biomimicry Inventors Inspired by Nature.

Annelouise Mahoney, author and illustrator of Julius and Macy: A Very Brave Night.

The second part of Writers’ Day will be a webinar with an editor or agent on another Saturday or Sunday, following the in-person event.

Come join us for our hybrid Writers’ Day in October!
