There’s nothing like starting something brand-spanking new at the beginning of a new year! Here we are in January 2017 and my co-editor, Ellie Brough, and I are raring to go with our editorship. We’re very excited to be getting to know our fabulous team and look forward to working with them on all the things that W&P already does so well, as well as introducing some new ideas (watch this space!).
But first, some introductions:
I’m thrilled at becoming co-editor of Words & Pictures with Ellie. The magazine is a reflection of the strongly supportive SCBWI community and has the potential to be the go-to place for information and inspiration about the craft and business of creating books for children.
Ellie says: “I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of co-editor of Words & Pictures with Claire Watts as my partner. I can’t wait to work with the wonderful and inspiring members of SCBWI to takes Words & Pictures to the next level and make a magazine that everyone can continue to be proud of.”
If you have any ideas or comments you would like to share, you can contact Ellie and me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have two more new editors to welcome to the team:
If you have ideas for features in W&P, you can contact Louisa and the other feature editors at email@example.com
A M Dassu became an SCBWI member in 2015 and has since written five picture books and a contemporary teen novel. She loves planning school workshops and, as a lover of hats, she spends a lot of her time choosing which hat to wear.
If you are interested in reporting on an SCBWI event for W&P, you can contact A M Dassu at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re thrilled also to be able to welcome Nick Cross back to W&P. His regular Ten-Minute Blog Break has been sorely missed. He’ll be back every other Tuesday. Watch out for his first post on January 10th!
And lastly, we’d like to thank Viv Dacosta who is stepping down from her role as Events Ed to take up a brand new SCBWI_BI project. It’s all a bit hush-hush at the moment, but we promise it’s VERY exciting! News coming very soon…
Phew! That’s it for this post. More new faces next Sunday.
Have a creative week!
