Amongst all the wonderfully talented authors and illustrations at this year’s festival, SCBWI: The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (informally called ‘Scoobie’) will be present.
The Wales network was revived in 2015 and has been building its member base ever since. We have regular informal catch-ups in both Carmarthen and Cardiff, host online critique groups, have a very active FB page, and have just started our programme of events and workshops for 2017. We cover all age groups and genres from picture books through to YA (young adult), and have members across the country.
