PAL Members

PAL stands for “Published and Listed.” PAL members have published books with traditional publishing houses that do not charge money to authors or illustrators.

SCBWI-L.A. supports its PAL members by helping them find an audience for their work and create a supportive network of publishing professionals. Our primary means of communicating these opportunities is via email – so watch your inbox for messages from SCBWI-Los Angeles.

In addition, we offer these annual events:

Mentor Contest

Booth at L.A. Times Festival of Books

Pitch Like a Pro Workshop

Makers Mixer

LA Comic Con
