Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all SCBWI-LA in-person events have been postponed until it is safe for us to meet again. However, our fabulous LitMingles are holding virtual meetings via Zoom.

LitMingles are great places to meet local authors and illustrators – people like you who share your interests and goals.

Check the LitMingle Calendar for this month's meetings.
