Bookings opening soon!

to SCBWI’s Annual Conference Party

17 November 2018
Winchester Discovery Centre
Jewry Street, SO23 8SB
7.30 to 11 pm

The Conference party will happen in the most appropriate place possible for a conglomeration of kidlit types – in Winchester’s magnificent library – The Discovery Centre.

What is it all about?

The Industry party is your opportunity to network and meet fellow SCBWI members as well as conference faculty and guests from the children’s book world – editors, agents and art directors. And what a treat!

What’s On

There’ll be a light finger buffet, a complimentary first drink, a cash bar and live music from Blow Saxophone Quartet. It will be a time of celebration! We will be applauding the latest crop of SCBWI books with our Mass Book Launch and eating CAKE!


What to wear

Dressing up for the SCBWI conference party is now very much ‘a thing’. This year our conference theme is Travelling Through Time, so in 2018, we want you bring your best historical, futuristic, fantasy, space age creation! There are so many fantastic characters at your disposal, we know from experience that you will bring your creative best! If dressing up is not for you, don’t worry – just put on your glad rags as normal and we’ll have something to help you get into the swing of it while maintaining your dignity.
