The Brazos Valley region is a vibrant place for writers and illustrators to grow in their careers. Our region hosts monthly meetings, one yearly large event, Saturday morning workshops, and an annual holiday party. We also have online resources through our Brazos Valley Scratchpad blog, a Facebook page and group, and Twitter. Our region is small in numbers but big in terms of success. SCBWI-BV has many published writers and a few have received national awards in recognition of their work. We are colleagues, cheerleaders and friends on an incredible journey together to share our stories with the world's children and young adults.
