Policies and Resources

Here’s where we’ve collected the policies, resources and new member information to clarify, inform and complete your SCBWI experience. If you have information that you think would benefit our community, let us know by clicking here!

Cancellation Policy
During this period of public health concerns, SCBWI has modified its cancellation/refund policy for all events as follows: If you need to cancel for health related concerns and cannot attend an event, you will be able to receive a full tuition refund so that you can stay home, take care of yourself, and prevent the spread of illness. This policy is in effect until September 1, 2020. Be well.

COVID-19 Resources Page
Resources for self-care, creativity and community Turn to this evolving webpage full of resources for whatever we might need at this critical time. See a hole? Help us fill it with your suggestion!  We’ll update this page regularly with your resources which will serve to comfort and let everyone know that help is at hand!
