The SCBWI Conference is about connecting with authors and illustrators around Australia and New Zealand, taking away cards with names of new colleagues, becoming an ‘insider’ in this community.
It’s about the next time there is a children’s book industry event, you have people you can connect with, which is part of growing as a writer and illustrator.

You'll learn lots, get leads and tips but the parts you'll remember most will be the friendship and excitement about the creative process.
So much of writing and illustrating is done alone. The community makes it warm and welcoming especially as you face the ups and downs of publication.
