LOOKING FOR A CRITIQUE GROUP? Go to the SCBWI Blueboard critique groups topic (click here)

 

LISTSERVE YOU MAY WANT TO JOIN

Be sure to visit the Blueboard for great discussions, but if you want to chat with others in our region, go ahead! 

While not affiliated with SCBWI, some Southern Breeze members keep in touch and informed through one or more online listserves.

You can find and join a regionally based Yahoo group by logging in to Yahoo and following these steps:

  1. Type “SouthernBreeze” or in the ‘find a group’ box
  2. Click on ‘Search’
  3. When you find the Southern-Breeze list, click ‘Join this group’ (you will need to set up a Yahoo account if you don’t already have one).
  4. To avoid marketing groups and spam, the Southern-Breeze group requires approval, and you should receive an email indicating that your request to join has been approved.

Please note that this group is not an official SCBWI site, and the comments posted are the opinions of those making the posts and do not reflect opinions of or postions taken by SCBWI.
