2014 Writers & Illustrators Working Conference Bookstore

For the first time, attendees to the Austin SCBWI annual conference can pre-order their books so they can be sure they'll have them on the day for signings.

BookPeople has set up a page where you can pre-order the books you want. Click here to pre-order your books.

Note: Not every book that's on the pre-order list will be available at the conference, so make sure you put in orders early.

Books can be pre-ordered until Jan. 26. You'll be able to pick up your books on the Saturday at the conference.

The available books include titles by our faculty, craft books recommended by our faculty and books by our published members who will be attending the conference. All will be in the signing at the end of the Saturday.
