2020 Conference Silent Auction

Austin SCBWI Writers & Illustrators Working Conference

PLEASE NOTE: We are working on how to run the silent auction online. We will post more information here when it’s finalized.

Your ongoing support of our annual silent auction has allowed us to provide conference scholarships, great speakers at our monthly meetings, plus webinars and workshops at low prices.

Given the unique situation this year, we’ll be donating auction proceeds to the SCBWI Emergency Fund, which assists members who are suffering a temporary hardship due to health issues, national emergencies or natural disasters.

Here are some of the items you’ll be able to bid on at our 2020 Writers & Illustrators Working Conference.

Signed copies of SHOUT and the SPEAK graphic novel by Laurie Halse Anderson

Query and First 10 Pages Critique by Agent Laurel Symonds

A five-page critique of a middle-grade or YA OR a full picture book text by Editor Karen Chaplin

Original artwork and set of signed Narwhal and Jelly books by Author/Illustrator Ben Clanton
