Membership Guidelines

Membership status: We are currently CLOSED to new members…but will announce openings soon. Stay tuned!  

We encourage you to be part of discussions by leaving a comment at the bottom of a page or post.  Thank you for supporting From the Mixed-Up Files!

Here are our membership qualifications:

Dedicated writers  of middle-grade literature of SCBWI PAL books.  We are also open to teachers and librarians who are dedicated readers of middle-grade literature.

Willing to contribute regularly scheduled blog posts, comment on the posts of others, and share/promote Mixed-Up Files content on social media on a monthly basis in addition to taking on one additional job to help keep our website updated and running smoothly.

Daring to be different: We want to offer more in this one spot than can be found anywhere else on the web. And we don’t want to serve leftovers or already digested bits. Think new! Think exciting! Think BIG!

We love comments and hope you’ll participate in our blog discussions. We even like it if you don’t agree with us! Just keep it clean and don’t throw tomatoes at anyone.

Thanks for visiting our site!
