After a long three years the Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators (SCBWI) British Isles Conference was finally back, but this time in a brand new venue - Manchester Metropolitan University.
It was absolutely fantastic to be back with old friends and meet new members. I had a new role this year as the 1-1 Coordinator which left me with more time to be able to attend various talks and workshops. I listened to Alex Wheatle deliver the most powerful Key Note Speech I think I've ever heard, I led my own talk with agents Katie Blagden from The Bright Agency and Becky Bagnell of Lindsay Literary and I attended a brilliant workshops on Writing in Verse with Lousia Reed.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
