PAL 2020 Book Slideshow

PAL 2020 Books Slideshow

As we approach the 2021 SCBWI Florida Annual Conference, we want to take time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our published and listed (PAL) authors and illustrators. As mentioned in a previous email, we would like for those who had a book (or books!) released in 2020 to create a single slide to be included in a slideshow at this year’s conference.


To make the slideshow as seamless and uniform as possible, we have decided to use Google Slides. For those unfamiliar with Google Slides: it is user-friendly, free to use, and is compatible with PowerPoint, Keynote, and other programs. We have created a shared Google Doc with detailed instructions, blank templates for you to personalize, and even an exemplar from our own Moira Rose Donohue (scroll to the bottom of the link to see it)! [Important note: if you had multiple books released this year, please only create one slide for all of your 2020 books.]


Link to Google Doc:


On your slide, feel free to move the items around, expand or contract the text boxes and add backgrounds and colors so it is uniquely yours. And please make sure to complete your slide NO LATER THAN JANUARY 8, 2021. 


If you have any questions about content or if you need technical assistance, please reach out to Jason at We look forward to sharing your successes with our entire SCBWI-FL family!
