EVENTS SCBWI Conference 2023 Saturday Night Party

What better way to end the day!

The Details

Venue: Manchester Metropolitan University
Time: 18:30 Welcome Drinks; 19:30 Dinner
* First drink is included in your conference ticket, cash bar thereafter.

With last year proving such a success, we are we are delighted to be once again holding our in-
person conference in Manchester. And of course, the Saturday night party will still be one of the
highlights of the weekend.

The party offers the perfect opportunity to network with other conference goers and make exciting
new writing & illustrating friends. But not only that, with the conference faculty and invited industry 
guests also in attendance, you never know who you’ll be standing next to at the bar!
This year the party will be taking place at Manchester University. The same venue as the main
conference! We’ll be settling in with a welcome drink and getting ready to mingle before sitting
down to a delicious three course meal.

The party also offers us the chance to celebrate all the publishing successes we’ve had over the last
year. If you’re registered for the Mass Book Launch, this is the place you need to be. We’ll also be
presenting the prestigious Crystal Kite award.

And of course, no conference party would be complete without our showstopper cake! If you're taking part in the mass book launch, you’ll even find a little fondant book around the edge with your
book cover printed on. And you might even find one of your characters incorporated in the design.
It’s almost a shame we’ll have to cut it!

As well as the cake, the other thing the conference party would not be complete without is fancy
dress! For many years conference goers have delighted in finding a costume. Whether it’s a small
nod to our conference theme or a full-blown kid lit character, you’ll fit right in. And who knows, you
might even win the prize for the best costume! This year the theme is in search of wonder. With such
a wide brief, there are plenty of ideas to choose from and still time to get creating your costume. But
don’t feel you have to dress up. Party clothes are just as acceptable.

With so much packed into the weekend, this conference is definitely one you’re not going to want to
miss. If you haven’t already booked your place, do so before it’s too late!

See you in Manchester!

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.
