You must all know what a HUGE fan of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - British Isles (SCBWI - BI) I am.
I've been an active member for over three years and started volunteering at their amazing conference last year.
It is absolutely brilliant and if you're a writer or illustrator of children's books at whatever stage of your journey you will LOVE this conference.

I gained so much from the weekend and feel privileged to be part of such an inspiring event. We were given the opportunity to network with all of the Industry professionals, from publishers, to agents, booksellers to contracts experts. We had practical advice on writing and what happens during the publishing process.
The best thing, for me, was to be able to talk to so many different writers coming from such a wide range of backgrounds, all with amazing stories to tell. It makes me excited to think about the future of children's books and what might be next. I'm making sure I'm a part of it!
If you're interested in the workshop for yourself, or a friend, Sarah has set up a blog that you can sign up to for more information: www.writersworkshop.blog. She also made a film of the event which will hopefully be on the blog soon for you all to watch.
There is always so much to get involved in - try not to miss out.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
