The British Isles region of SCBWI has grown dramatically since it launched in a London sitting room more than a decade ago.

We now boast boast many local networks to serve members where they live. Each network strives to run events and socials geared for the needs of its members. Key SCBWI programmes like the Professional Series have now found its way North … while sketch crawls that began up North have wended their way South! Please use the map on the right to identify your network then click on the menu on the top right to find out more about activities in your area.

Every network is only as good as its volunteers and we are constantly impressed by the efforts and passion of our network volunteers across the United Kingdom. Click here to get to know our Network Coordinators

Each network runs a different range of events, from critique groups and social meetings to workshops and talks. Regular report from the Networks appear in our online Magazine Words & Pictures. Click here to check out the latest Network News
