Authors and illustrators from Brisbane Write Links immersed themselves in industry news, writing and illustrating master classes and were surrounded by kidlit elite at the 2014 Sydney SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) last week.
For a full report on each session, read the Roving Reporters blog posts on the SCBWI blog. And for more impressions on the conference read posts by Illustrator Tanya Hempson and Author/ Illustrator Yvonne Mes.
Peter Taylor launched his first picture book, Once a Creepy Crocodile, with The Five Mile Press
Pamela Rushby launched her YA historical fiction novel, The Ratcatcher's Daughter, with HarperCollins.
I just wish the organisers had left the portfolios out a bit longer in order for the rest of the delegates to savour all the artwork on display.
