PAL Members

Are you currently a PAL member of SCBWI?  If so, we have a group that’s just for you. There are two main benefits the group offers:

Periodic Meetings

Approximately three times a year, published members of the San Diego Chapter of SCBWI gather together around a topic of interest or just to network. If you would like to be notified of any upcoming meetings and/or have suggestions of topics, speakers, or are interested in hosting a meeting, please contact Virginia Loh-Hagan at 

Yahoo Listserv

Published members of the San Diego Chapter are also invited to join our on-going Yahoo Group. The Listserv functions as forum for information exchange and the sharing of lessons learned. To become a member of the listserv, send an email request to join the Yahoo Group to Virginia Loh-Hagan at  They will forward your message to Michael Mahin the list moderator. Be sure to include in the body of your request the email address at which you wish to receive messages from the group.

Please note activities of the published members group are designed to address the issues and concerns of PAL authors and illustrators. As such participation is restricted to PAL members of SCBWI. Thank you for your understanding.
