It's time to update the Houston SCBWI Speakers Bureau information on the chapter website. This information is helpful to librarians and other individuals interested in scheduling author visits and presentations.
If you would like your name posted on the website, please read the following.
Authors and illustrators on the Speakers Bureau must meet the SCBWI requirements of P. A.L. (stands for published and listed) membership. This level of membership is open to those whose books, articles, poems, stories, illustration, photographs, films, television or electronic media for children have been commercially published by one of the organizations listed in the SCBWI Market Surveys.
If you have questions about your PAL status go to scbwi.org, search PAL, and look at the section titled, "Levels of Membership." You may also check your own profile for PAL status.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SENDING FILES
1. If you are currently on the Speakers Bureau page, please check the website and make certain this information is correct before sending your new file.
2. Please use ONLY .jpg files and send a ZIP FILE when sending several files. Name the zip file "yourname.zip." Violators will have their files sent into cyberspace, never to be returned.
3. Please DO NOT send PowerPoint Presentations or Word files with images in them. It will drive our web manager crazy and a replacement would be hard to find.
4. Please DO NOT send your bio as an e-mail. Attach it as a separate doc/txt file. Violators will have their drivers license photos placed on the web page in lieu of their current picture.
5. Keep the bios under 250 words. Anything longer than that is
well, just too long.
