November 24 - November 26
This year’s theme is humour, but as we all know, the best art forms have light even in the darkness. The conference has something for everyone – whether you’re writing laugh out loud comedy or drawing silly pictures; or if you’re looking for ways to bring light relief into your gritty teen fiction or those serious scribbles. Liz Pinchon, Alex T Smith and Julia Eccleshare will join as keynote speakers and a broad spectrum of agents, publishers and illustrators will lead talks and workshops over the 3 days.
The SCBWI Conference is a superb opportunity to focus your creative craft and industry intelligence with leading illustrators, agents, art directors, publishers and editors covering the breadth of children’s illustration. Come and discover fresh perspectives for your illustration practice, connect with the best in the business, and share your experiences with fellow artists and writers. Leave inspired, recharged (and a little bit wiser!) about the best career on the planet.
