Tampa Bay Events



November meet up is a field trip. Yay!


The knowledge we gain through SCBWI is transformational but the secret sauce is the relationships we build with members who encourage us to keep writing and gift us critiques that make our stories sparkle.


Let's get out and support our gifted and generous members at:


Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading
Sat., Nov 11, 2017 at 2 pm

Room 118 of the Peter Rudy Wallace Florida Center for Teachers
USF ST PETE campus NOT Tampa


@Shannon Hitchcock, @Augusta Scattergood, @Fred Koehler, and @Rob Sanders with moderator @Lorin Oberweger


Their panel discussion, "Putting Heart on the Page: From Idea to Characters to Page Turners, Children's Book Authors Share Their Stories."

Our meetings are at Charles J. Fendig Library. 3909 W. Neptune Street, Tampa, Florida 33629. If you exit on Dale Mabry heading toward Kennedy Boulevard and Neptune will be a few lights up, and the library will be to the right. The library has a small parking lot, with additional parking diagonally across the street. This is a small, neighborhood library that doesn’t host many events and they are thrilled to have us.
