SCBWI SPARKS … Indie Showcase

SCBWI recognises the increasing number of our members who are independent/hybrid publishing. At the SCBWI State Conference 2019, we extend an invitation to these members to display a copy of their latest self-published/indie published book to the SCBWI SPARKS Showcase table.

You may put a business card inside the front of your book with the price and your contact details. Any sales would be your responsibility, of course.

International SCBWI has an annual prize for independently published members, THE SPARK AWARD.  It recognises excellence in a children’s book published through a non-traditional publishing route. In 2017, it was awarded to Australian SCBWI member, Michelle Morgan.
