Freebie Table, Brag Table, and New Bookmark Opportunity

Do you have something related to your literary work that you'd like donate or share? Something you'd like to give…such as a cool postcard of your upcoming/past work? A business card promoting author visits? A flyer for an event you're featured in? Bring those types of materials to our Freebie Table! Conference attendees can grab anything and everything they are interested in. Please bring all materials on the day of the conference. Take home what's left (or it'll be, uh, recycled).


Do you have something to show off? Something you'd like others to see, such as your new book? A fancy award? A plush toy made to look like your latest main chararacter? Bring those kinds of items to our Brag Table! Display items will be placed on a table where conference attendees can gawk and drool over your most recent accompishments. These items are not to be removed from the table by anyone except you. Please bring anything you'd like to display on the day of the conference. And take them home with you! We'd really hate to "recycle" those! PLEASE be advised these treasures are on display at your discretion. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.


Guess what? We have a new opportunity: The GiveawayYourBookmark! This year, we are calling on any author or illustrator with bookmarks to spare, to participate in a fun giveaway. We'll randomly stuff your bookmark in a conference folder as a giveaway. Everyone in the conference will walk away with a fresh bookmark, and one of them will be yours!

The guidelines are as follows:
– The bookmark must pertain to a book released in either 2015 or 2016
– You must send in no fewer than 25, and no more than 50 
– Bookmarks must be received NO LATER than 2/18/16
– Mail bookmarks to SCBWI CA North/Central, PO Box 4516, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762
