Dear SCBWI Members,

We set up the Ning many years ago to create a social networking space for our members. However the recently launched worldwide SCBWI website on now provides many of the functions we have here. The Ning has been amazing but in an effort to consolidate the online platforms of SCBWI British Isles, we have taken the difficult decision to move activities on the Ning to the main website on the subdomain
Please take the time to log into SCBWI. org and set up your profile, if you haven't already.
Explore the Blue Boards, discussion boards that can connect you with not just British Isles members but the rest of the SCBWI world. If you are  published member, make sure you update your published books list so that you are elegible for the Crystal Kite Prize. 
Apologies to the inconvenience of this move, especially to the newest members, but in the long run, it will mean a more dynamic and connected SCBWI.
Candy Gourlay
Founding Admin of the SCBWI Ning
