Bologna – It Does Begin

Bologna – It Does Begin

FINALLY – I get around to posting about Bologna. Many folks know that a few weeks ago I was in Bologna attending the Bologna Book Fair. Every second year the SCBWI hosts a booth at the fair. This year it was mega … bigger booth, more people, lots of great attractions and a crew of […]

New York Winter SCBWI

New York Winter SCBWI

Superb, awesome, glorious, wonderful … FUN! These are just a few of the words for my 5 days in New York. Then one can add to that tiring, wearisome, jovial, hilarious, inspirational, and invigorating. Of course it wasn’t all just fun and games. There was much work completed as well. My most exciting part though […]

gathering with SCBWI Hong Kong

gathering with SCBWI Hong Kong

It is always a buzz being in Hong Kong (it is one of my favourite places) and being able to chat with the SCBWI Hong Kong chapter last week continued that tradition. A gathering of members and non-members (some whom became SCBWI members straight after my talk – the wonders of instant signups) rolled in after a day […]

Go Day 2 – #LA15SCBWI

Go Day 2 – #LA15SCBWI

So far this year I have been to conferences where the stupendous and fantastical Dan Santat and amazing and exhilarating Kwame Alexander have both starred – in New York at the winter conference and again in New England […]

Pre Conference

Pre Conference

The buzz is increasing but before the conference begins is the gathering for the regional advisors (and those of us who were). A day to workshop and share thoughts and discover solutions to the problems that are taking forever to be worked out! And what could be better right now than feasting – it’s breakfast under the Californian sun. Then […]

Here we go ….

Here we go ….

Well sort of. The SCBWI crew are starting to roll in to town and as usual a gathering was held for those of us here now to catch up and swap gossip and just get lots of hugs and kisses. It’s always such a glorious time catching up with these wonderful friends and tradition holds that […]

A Carolinas Weekend

A Carolinas Weekend

A full moon rising over the horizon. This was sure to be oodles of fun. Friday night I began the proceedings with an opening keynote that was part inspirational (to get the folks in the mood) and part story – talking about creating believable characters, and finding story, and listening to the child voice, while my Sunday […]
