Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Retreat
May 5-9, 2008
(not only members of the SCBWI)…
THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY YOU MUST NOT MISS.
We are lucky to have enticed the chief editor from a children’s magazine and two established international children’s book agents to participate in our retreat: Christine Clark from the Highlights Magazine, USA, and
Christine Clark: “I'm delighted that my first trip to South Africa will be centred on making and encouraging new friends who share my passion for creating high-quality literature for children. I hope I can spark in many of you a greater awareness of and appreciation for children's magazines--one of my great loves--and I look forward to learning from all of you, as well.”
Rosemary Canter: “I am thrilled to be invited, intrigued to find out more about South African publishing, and, like all agents, hungry to find talented writers and illustrators. So I’m looking forward very much to meeting all the participants.”
Susanne Koppe: “...that's all very, very exciting and I feel so honoured you wish to invite me. I really hope I can meet your expectations and make my participation worthwhile. Years ago I translated a South African exile-author, Norman Silver, and since then I wanted to travel to the country.”
