Summer is coming! For some members it can mean free time to dig in to new projects and for others it means limited time to create (but lots to observe children in action!). Come join us for a Create Date, whether you’re gearing up, or winding down. This meeting will include interactive activities to get your creative juices flowing as well as quite “butt in chair” time to get some writing/drawing done.

We’re also bringing back our pre-pandemic Gentle Critique from 9:30-10am. If you’d like to share your work in progress with others and receive or provide feedback, please bring printed copies of up to 5 pages of a manuscript to share. Zoom participants will be allowed to screen share in order to receive feedback.  Please see this handy guide on critique etiquette if this will be your first time participating in a critique:

As usual, our meetings are free and open to the public. We encourage you to invite members of the Brazos Valley writing community to join us! Attendees are welcome to join us via Zoom as well. SCBWI members will automatically receive login information via email, non-members can register for free on the event page. A replay will be provided to all SCBWI members and registered guests and will also be posted on the Members Only SCBWI Brazos Valley private Facebook group (join here:

We strongly encourage attendees to wear masks during our in-person meetings for the safety of our members and the wider community.
