Bring several copies of no more than five pages from your manuscript. (Please make sure your pages follow the FORMATTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT guidelines on page 10 of SCBWI’s The Book.) This may be the first five pages or any other five pages, but if you bring something from the middle of your book, be prepared to give a short summary of what happened prior to those pages. We will put people in genre groups, so be sure to RSVP with what genre you are planning on bringing.
