SCBWI SA– Upcoming Events
Happening in Cape Town


Deadline has been extended to the 25th of August

To celebrate the 40th birthday of the international Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the South African chapter is arranging a gala Spring Event from 21 to 27 October, open to members and non-members. The event will have three components, each with a separate attendance fee:

1. A one-day children’s book conference
2. Gala luncheon with specialist speakers
3. Four days of specialist review sessions by appointment for individual writers and illustrators

The conference and luncheon are open to all with an interest in children’s books, e.g. writers, illustrators, parents, teachers, booksellers, librarians, publishers and policy-makers. The review sessions are for writers and illustrators, whether or not they are members of SCBWI or whether they have been published or not.
