Location: Sandy's apartment in Tien-mu
Cost (contribution toward healthy snacks): NT$50 members, NT$60 non-
NOTE: If any additional writers want to join now that the date has
been changed, please let me know ASAP. If you've already contacted
me, I'm assuming you can still come (if you can't, then let me know).
Previous message content re the critique is below:
Please bring up to 1500 words of an in-progress manuscript (written
in English for children of any age). Remember double-space, 12pt
font, one inch margins --- pretend you are submitting this to a
publisher. Also remember for PBs -- shorter (900 words or under) is
more marketable! Longer word count is to give middle-grade or young
adult writers the chance to read a section of their first chapter.
Please bring eight copies so that everyone can look at it and
comment on it while you read it aloud.
Space is limited because we will meet at Sandy's apartment in Tien-
mu! Please reply to scbwi_taiwan@... and let me know your
manuscript title, genre (i.e. picture book, first chapter from middle
grade novel) and length.
I will write back to confirm your participation and give you Sandy's
Remember to check out www.scbwi.org for lots of relevant information
about writing for children. Be sure to take a look
at 'Publications' -
- there is a lot of valuable information there for both SCBWI
members and non-members.
See you there!
