SCBWI Nevada

Welcome to SCBWI Nevada!

We are a diverse community of hardworking volunteers dedicated to fostering a community of pre-published and published authors of children’s books that includes young adult books. We support our membership by creating events throughout the year that connect writers and illustrators with notable agents and editors in the children’s book industry. Come and share ideas, make new friends, find critique groups near you, and learn more about the book industry.
