SCBWI British Isles is led by Regional Advisor Natascha Biebow with ARA Benjamin Scott and a team of fantastic volunteers!
SCBWI-BI supports both aspiring and established children’s book writers and illustrators by helping them to develop their craft and keep up to date with industry knowledge, publishers, and each other. We focus on selling our work to both the British and International markets, especially the USA.
Events include the bi-monthly professional series in London and up north, a series of masterclasses, PULSE events for published members, an retreat, agents’ party, and an annual two-day conference.
We also run several competitions, including the slushpile challenge and biennial UNDISCOVERED VOICES competition (www.undiscoveredvoices.com
) that has helped numerous authors get agented and published.
A network of regional coordinators run local critique groups and organise workshops, speaker events and socials around the British Isles.

We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events!
