Illustrator Gallery - Sheryl Gwyther
I’m Sheryl Gwyther, an author from Brisbane, Australia. I write children’s novels, school plays, short stories and articles, chapter books, and Flash Fiction for adults. I also love presenting workshops at schools, libraries, literature festivals, SCBWI Conferences and in-school Writer-Residency programs.
My novel, SWEET ADVERSITY, a Mid-grade historical adventure set in the Great Depression in Australia was awarded a SCBWI ARA – Work of Outstanding Progress Grant. It’s the first time an Australian has won this award. It was also awarded a SCBWI RAM grant in 2018. I’ve also been a recipient of two Australian Society of Authors’ Mentorships and two May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust Fellowships.
My role as a SCBWI ARA in Australia allows me to advocate for writers, children’s books and literacy.LATEST NEWS: My middle grade historical adventure, SWEET ADVERSITY will be published by HarperCollins Australia in July 2018.
