#DialogsNYC: A meetup for creators from marginalized communities (Thursdays)

A Seat at the Table: SCBWI Roundtable on Inclusion (Sundays)

  • March 30, 2-4 PM Eastern

    We meet via voice chat on Discord, which is free and platform independent (download the app or run in a browser). Works better if you have a good internet connection.
About Discord Meet-Ups
Discord is a free, platform-independent chat and texting platform, which can be run in a browser or as an app (desktop/Android/iPhone). I’ve set up a server with text and chat channels for different events. It’s pretty easy to use, but if you are not a regular chat platform user, join 15 minutes early for a “meet-and-greet” test chat session.
The text channels are available 24/7, so feel free to stop anytime! 

FREE! — No Membership Required
