If you're interested in publishing books for teens and kids, consider the organization that helped many get started--the SCBWI (Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators). After 18 years of volunteering for our Florida chapter, Gaby has served as Co-Regional Advisor, given critiques to aspiring authors, taught workshops, and handled book events. Every year, SCBWI Florida hosts two major conferences, the Regional Conference held every January in Miami, and the Mid-Year Workshop in Disney World every June. SCBWI Florida also hosts several free events for writers and illustrators across the state. If you're interested in joining, or just curious about how to get started, visit SCBWI Florida's site at florida.scbwi.org.
