Picture Book Group

The SCBWI NV Picture Book Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday and 4th Wednesday of each month.

This is a NV member-only event. We suggest that you ask your region to create something similar.

We have a dedicated Facebook group for Picture Book writers in Nevada. Here is the link in case you haven’t signed up for that yet. You can comment and ask questions about the upcoming meeting on Facebook group page. This is NOT where you will register for the meeting.

If you have questions please email the moderator for the group, Bonnie Kelso.

To participate in our Saturday morning or Wednesday evening meetings, you must register for the event. The registration is open for Saturday or Wednesday on the second of each month. Please view the calendar on the front page of the webpage. 


Once registered, an email with the unique link and password for the meeting will be emailed to you the day before the meeting. Register early, because registration will close a few days before the meeting.



The group uses Google Drive to share manuscripts for the meeting. If you are sharing your manuscript, please use the link below to upload your document. Each meeting has a folder organized by date. Please have your manuscripts uploaded by the Wednesday before the Saturday meeting. This gives your critique partners a chance to review the work in advance.


Leaving Comments:

When you are critiquing someone else’s work and you want to leave comments, download a copy, make your comments on the document, then email it to the author directly. This way the shared folder will remain uncluttered and it will be easy to see who has submitted each week.
