Regional Conference Details
SCBWI SA is planning a conference as part of its Spring Event in October 2011.
The primary focus of this Spring Event conference will be on the opportunities and challenges facing children’s book writers and illustrators in these days of rapid change and development in the new democratic South Africa, specifically in the area of educational publications. A secondary focus will be on possible opportunities opening up in international markets (maybe including the rapidly expanding markets in the East?) for South African children’s book writers and illustrators – both in English and in translation.
The Event will be spread over six days. There will be a one-day conference, a gala luncheon to celebrate the SCBWI's birthday and four days of critique sessions with an international agent.
