Sketch Crawl, Critiques, and a Drink!

3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Downtown Spokane Public Library (3rd floor Boardroom)
906 W. Main Avenue - Spokane, WA

Our Spokane Summer Social will take place in Downtown Spokane on July 20.


Meet in the Boardroom (3rd Floor) at the Downtown Spokane Library at 3:00. 


Illustrators will venture out for a sketch-crawl through Riverfront Park, with stops at the carousel and the big red wagon!

Bring your sketching supplies, a water bottle, and a camp chair if you would prefer to sit while you sketch.


Writers will gather for peer critiques. This is a great opportunity to polish your manuscript pages before conference consultation materials are due. 

Bring a water bottle, a pen, and the first 800 words of a picture book, or 3 to 5 pages of an MG or YA novel. You may also bring the sample you plan to read at the first impression session at our Rise & Shine conference.

**Please bring 5 copies for critique comments.


After the “work” we’ll catch-up over a drink at Twigs in Riverpark Square. For those that can only make the social at Twigs, we’ll arrive between 4:30 and 5 pm. 


This is a FREE event (except for the drinks). However, by registering below, we’ll be able to reserve you a seat at Twigs.

**Some walking involved.

Please contact the organizer if you have any questions or mobility concerns.
