Our Annual MD/DE/WV Regional Conference has a New Home!

Awesome news for those of you who are planning on attending our next SCBWI MD/DE/WV 25th Annual Regional Conference … it will have a new home! Here’s the announcement our co-regional adviser, Kathy MacMillan sent out with all the details:

25 and Still We R(ev)ise

We’re excited to announce that our MD/DE/WV Annual Conference will have a new home in 2018.  Though we have loved the beautiful Claggett Center, which has housed our conference for many years, we are simply outgrowing it!  (But we can’t quit it completely – be on the lookout for a writing retreat at Claggett in Fall 2018!).  After researching and visiting several facilities in the area, our committee has selected the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland as the home of our 2018 Conference. It’s got a big, bright, beautiful facility, easy access from public transportation and BWI airport, and plenty of comfortable hotel rooms, so we hope you’re as excited as we are!

So save the dates for our 2018 MD/DE/WV Annual Conference at the Maritime Conference Center!  The conference will be held Saturday, March 17 to Sunday, March 18, 2018, with social activities scheduled for Friday evening.  Early bird registration will begin in December. To celebrate our region’s 25th anniversary, the theme will be: 25 and Still We R(ev)ise.


Speaking of 2018 MD/DE/WV Annual Conference: We are now accepting proposals for 50-minute breakout sessions and 3-hour intensive workshops for the conference.  If you’ve got a great workshop to propose, check out the link to learn how to submit your proposal.

Hope to see you there and as always, happy writing and drawing!
