SCBWI meeting in Hobart on March 24th

There will be a meeting of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) in Hobart for the first time ever on Monday 24th March. I highly recommend SCBWI as an organisation for children’s book authors and illustrators – I’ve been a member for four years, and I love it. It’s an international organisation with a huge membership, numerous big conferences (including one in Sydney this year), and lots of resources (competitions, website, newsletter, publishing guides). Members get their own profile page on the website to show their art and sell their books (here’s mine as an example: http://www.scbwi.org/members-public/gay-mckinnon ). If children’s books are your thing, come along and hear from the head honcho, Susanne Gervay, what SCBWI will be up to this year. Details below.
