Peter Davis established the SCBWI New England listserv in October 1999. Currently more than 1,000 SCBWI members (mostly from New England) have joined. A listserv (or email list service) is a way for someone to send a message and have it transmitted simultaneously to everyone on the list.
There is no cost for subscribing to the listserv and no easier way for a member to pass along information (like what editor is moving to what house), to ask questions of other SCBWI writers and illustrators, to read current announcements of regional events and time-sensitive news about the children’s book business, and to find links to blog posts of interest. We have some very wise members on our list who generously share their advice and opinions.
Any member of SCBWI can subscribe to the SCBWI New England listserv by sending an email, with his or her name in the message area, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subscribing members have options, such as whether they want emails sent as soon as they are posted on the list, or combined and sent in one message once a day (in “digest” form). Changes to these choices can be made by selecting “Edit Membership” from: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nescbwi/ .
