Children's Book Writers
and Illustrators

About our chapter

Welcome to SCBWI Belgium & Luxembourg!

We are a small but dynamic group of aspiring and published children’s book authors and illustrators. We regularily have a wide range of events, such as:

– weekend retreats to focus on our work (one in September, one in April/May)

– online workshops with industry professionals

– supportive critique groups to work on craft and help each other on the path to and after publication

– informal gatherings to network and get to know each other better

We have a bi-monthly MG/YA critique group that meets every other Thursday, and a monthly MG/YA critique group that meets every second Saturday for working writers. We also have a monthly illustrators critique group and several online groups. We are on twitter @scbwiBelgium and have a facebook group ‘Friends of SCBWI Belgium’. Come connect!


We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events,
