Summer is here, and while many of us may still be spending it at home, we’d like an excuse to mingle and celebrate what we’ve accomplished in a coronavirus year!

And why not celebrate while practicing Twitter-pitching our current projects?

Time will be allotted for each interested participant—writer, illustrator, or translator—to share one Twitter pitch for a current project. The Twitter pitch (up to 280 characters) should be emailed to the event host in advance per instructions provided when you reserve. During the party, each pitch will be shared on a slide, read aloud, and discussed for 5 minutes. With a friendly atmosphere, this will be a great chance to read several Twitter pitches and share ideas. Submitting a pitch is not required.

Care to join us? All SCBWI Japan members are welcome to participate. You can check your membership status by visiting, clicking the striped green icon at the top right, and then clicking Renew.

We look forward to your email reservation by July 12, your Twitter pitch, and your participation in the SCBWI Japan 2021 Summer Party!
