Writing or illustrating can be a lonely endeavor, so join us this summer for some much-needed social time. We’ll be coming together at the Rice Terrace Pavilion at Liberty Park (600 E. 900 S. in Salt Lake City, Utah) on Friday, July 18th from 6pm-9pm to eat and mingle.
You don’t have to be a member of SCBWI to join us for this free event, so bring all your writing or illustrating friends with you. The more the merrier!
Potluck assignments are as follows:
YA writers: pasta salads, potato salads, deviled eggs
MG writers: fruit, fruit salads, desserts
Picture Book writers: fried chicken, finger sandwiches, other finger foods
Illustrators: green salads, chips and dips
You may want to bring your own lawn chair as well.
SOCIAL NETWORKING AT THE SOCIAL:
Are you still struggling to figure out where to start with your online presence? Bring your smartphones and other wifi-enabled devices and we’ll help you get connected. We’ll have teachers on hand to walk you through the steps to signing up and using your social networks of choice, as well as offer suggestions on ways to contribute to the online conversation.
THE VIRTUAL PARTY:
Can’t make it to the social? This year you can join us virtually! We will be using the hashtags #GoSocial and #SCBWIUtahSouthIdaho for this event, so you can follow the event on twitter, instagram, and other social networks.
We hope to see you at the social (in person or online)!
