Greetings from Winchester!

It's the conference weekend, Yay!
On Twitter we're #scbwicon
And SCBWI Bloggers, are you up for the Conference Blog Challenge?
So looking forward to why you love the SCBWI conference on Tuesday!

Here we are...

We had GREAT pre-conference week last week:
Inspiration, Blogs, Agents, Volunteers, Graphic Novels and Celebration!

Plus there was a massive haul for Authors for the Philippines!

I hope you'll join us next week and into December for conference reports and something so lovely for the festive season our very own...

Words & Pictures Advent Calendar!

Superstar Paul Morton has been collecting illustrations on a seasonal them from some very generous SCBWI illustrators. Here on a Words & Pictures we'll be posting a teaser crop of each image every day until Christmas Day. You will need to click through to the Illustrator Showcase to see the whole picture and the gradually building Advent Calendar. (It's not there yet!)

A BIG thank you all the contributing illustrators!

And another BIG Thank you to Amanda Lillywhite who designed these splendid stickers and badges to promote SCBWI's amazing volunteer opportunities.

Wouldn't you just love to have one! 

If you're reading this at the conference, find me and say hello. If you ask about volunteering you can have Mr Toad, or if you're already a volunteer and happy to talk to other people about volunteering, Ms T Rex. See them in Duck & Bear too!

Wherever you are I hope you're having a great Dr Who 50th Anniversary weekend!

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
