SCBWI

If you haven’t heard of SCBWI before, it’s the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. It’s a wonderful worldwide organisation, all about supporting the growth and development of its members.

When living in Brisbane my Queensland SCBWI group was one of my greatest supports, and leaving them was incredibly tough. Now in Adelaide we have just started up our own South Australian chapter, with the help of Chris Cheng, co-director of SCBWI Australia. I’ll be leading the group, helped by all the wonderful members here as we get to know each other.

That’s Chris and I above – Chris generously did a quick fly by visit for our last meeting to let us know all about SCWBI and how we can operate as a newly formed group. A few of us will also be attending the Sydney SCWBI conference later in the year. It should be a wonderful couple of days (I hope to see many of you there!). Also, due to the scholarship I received earlier in the year, I’ll get to attend the SCWBI winter conference in New York in January.

It’s turning into a very SCWBI kind of year for me…
