NEWS The times they are a-changing

 SCBWI British Isles would like to say a huge thank you to John Shelley, Helen Moss and Anita Gallo – three of our fantastic Network Organisers who have recently handed over the reins to new volunteers.

Central East Network

John Shelley and Helen Moss have been heading up our Central East Network for a number of years now. Helen has done a brilliant job building up our SCBWI presence in and around Cambridge, hosting socials and events that have greatly enriched our member offer in that area.

Meanwhile, John has brought together members in the remoter parts of Central East. Despite the challenges of geography, he has succeeded in building a strong community, supporting SCBWI members new and old, online and in person. He’s also arranged many socials and events in and around Norwich that have been greatly valued by members.

Thank you so much John and Helen..! And welcome Debbie Edwards our new Network Organiser for Central East. Thank you for stepping up.

South East Scotland Network

Anita Gallo has been with us for less time, but she’s had a big impact. Thanks to Anita and her colleague Sarah Broadley, this year members in SE Scotland have benefited from socials, critique groups, skills sharing sessions, and panel event at the Edinburgh Book Festival. They even managed to tempt the amazing Sarah Davies from the Greenhouse Literary Agency to Scotland.

Thank you Anita…! And welcome Elizabeth Frattaroli who is now working alongside Sarah to bring amazing things to SE Scotland. Great to have you on board!

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.
