About Us


We are the Inland Northwest region of SCBWI. We have a little over 100 members living throughout eastern Washington and North Idaho. The highest percentage resides in the Spokane area.

Our members write and illustrate books, magazine articles, and other media for children and teens. We have published and pre-published members. You can join today!

There are several ways members can connect to the community. (Don’t forget to log in, many features and resources are accessible to members only.)

1. Attend one of our virtual events.

2. Create an SCBWI member profile. Log in, visit: My Home/Edit Profile, and add your details.

3. Be sure your email address (listed in your profile) is current. We send a newsletter  on the 10th of each month.

4. Add to your “Safe Senders” list so our emails aren’t mistakenly sent to your spam folder.

5. Follow us on social media.  Let us know you’re an Inland Northwest member and what you’re working on. We’ll follow you back!
