Summer Social: Picnic & Critique Group/Sketch Session

Date(s) - 08/18/2018
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Mission Park
1043 East Sharp - Spokane, WA

Optional Sketch Session 3-4pm 

Theme: Summer Fun.

Bring your sketchbook and get inspired working alongside other illustrators. Feel free to bring current projects, portfolio pieces or a picture book dummy to show the group and receive feedback. (Please no originals, we’d hate for them to get greasy fingerprints or condiment spatters.)


Due to poor air quality picnic hours have been shortened to 3pm-5pm.


Optional Manuscript Critique Group 3pm

Bring 3-5 pages of your work-in-progress to share with other writers. Get general feedback or ask for specific observations.

Picnic 3-5pm

Everyone welcome, families included!

INW-SCBWI will provide picnic chicken, soft drinks, plates, cups, eating utensils and napkins for everyone. Please bring a salad to share if you live in the Spokane area. If you’re coming from out-of-town, please bring a dessert to share.

The Mission Park South Picnic Shelter is reserved for us. Parking spaces on East Sharp east of North Superior street. The park has beautiful shade trees, lots of green grass, a splash pad and all-ability accessible playground. Come kick back and relax, make new friends and catch up with old. If you haven’t come to any of our events, this will be a great ice-breaker.

Please register below to let us know you’re coming and how many people you’ll be bringing. We want to have enough chicken and plates for you!
