Annual Spring Mingle in Richmond

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here’s something that I thought I’d pass on in case anyone is interested:


Spring Mingle in Richmond, Virginia:

All SCBWI members are invited to the annual Spring Mingle in Richmond. With Louise Hawes from the Vermont College MFA program as our featured speaker, the program is designed to benefit both newbies and seasoned veterans. In addition to Louise’s remarks, you’ll be able to learn from published authors such as Gigi Amateau, Meg Medina, Ellen Braaf, Ginjer Clarke, Troy Howell, Erica Kirov, Lana Krumwiede, Anne Marie Pace, Brian Rock, and A.B. Westrick.

There will be breakout sessions for picture books, middle grade, young adult, nonfiction, and illustration, with a published author leading each group. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other children’s writers and illustrators and to feel inspired and re-energized about your writing journey.

If you have any friends who are curious about SCBWI, this is the perfect event to bring them along. Nonmembers are welcome!

Here are the details:

Saturday, April 27
1:00 – 4:30 pm
Richmond Public Library
101 East Franklin Street

This event is FREE! We are asking attendees to preregister by sending an email All you need to do is tell us you’re coming and give us an idea which break-out group you’d most likely choose.

We would love to see you at the Spring Mingle!


About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!

  1. Dear Laura,

    Hearing about this Richmond meeting only three days in advance is such a shame as I have friends to bring but don’t know if any of them can come out the last minute. Thank you,
