AFCC – last day

AFCC – last day

This was a quick trip to Singapore for AFCC and for my third day there I had another moderating session, this for Dr. Janet Evans where she talked about migration, immigration and children’s books. It was a wonderful and informative session, especially listening to the audio of the children’s interpretation of the books and the their thoughts on […]

More from AFCC

There was much happening on Day 2 of AFCC, with Shaun Tan skyping in from Australia being hugely popular. The country of focus this year is Japan and there were many beautiful presentations from this delegation.

Hello AFCC Singapore

I jumped a plane in Sydney bound for Singapore on Tuesday evening and 8 and a smidge hours later, (squashed, cramped and cold but thankfully with an empty seat beside me) I arrived in Singapore ready to roll out for the seventh instalment of the Asian Festival of Children’s Content.

AFCC 2015 – Day 2

Lots of action today (well mostly after lunch) at AFCC with talks on Transmedia Publishing, Indigenous Writing, Digital Content, Humour as well as special session for the country of focus – China. For me it was nice to have a quieter morning before a SCBWI lunch connecting with the Regional Team members here at the […]

AFCC 2015 – day one

AFCC 2015 – day one

“Here we go again. I remember this road quite well,” I thought as we were shimmying and skimming down the road (and there was some shimmying and skimming … it was wet) from Changi Airport in Singapore, in the taxi at 10pm last night. And when I pulled up at the hotel – it was just as […]
