Thanks to an anonymous grant, tuition assistance is available for members of the San Francisco/South region! SCBWI San Francisco/South is committed to reducing financial barriers so that everyone in our region can bring their stories to life. 

If you are a current member of San Francisco/South and require free or reduced fees for a manuscript critique or roundtable, email with “Agent Day Coupon” in the subject and body and we will reply with discounted coupon codes –  no questions asked, no explanation needed.

Pro tip: request the coupon code before registration opens on January 9th so you are ready to register before the extra add-ons sell out!


Refund Policy:

There are NO REFUNDS available for this event. Before you register, be 100% sure that:

• For a manuscript critique, you have a manuscript ready to submit by the deadline of January 18th, 2023. See the manuscript guidelines here. 

• For a manuscript critique with a Zoom meeting or a roundtable, you must be able to attend the scheduled critique or roundtable time. We CANNOT reschedule missed sessions for any reason. Please see the schedule page for details.

The presentations will be recorded. If you are unable to attend the live session on March 11th, you can still view them at your convenience for 30 days after the event.
