Welcome to the 2015 Conference Booking Form!

This will be our 9th annual conference, offering  you a mix of inspiration, opportunity, fun and learning for writers and illustrators.


This year we are proud to present not one, not two but FOUR keynotes! For the first time, we have a joint author keynote: the dynamic duo of Philip Reeve, Carnegie winning author of the Mortal Engines books, and sparkling author-illustrator Sarah McIntyre. Our illustrator keynote is the impressive Jonny Duddle, creator of the Pirates series that spawned the blockbuster movie. Our industry keynote is the inspirational publisher David Fickling, whose golden touch brought us such stars as Philip Pullman and Jacqueline Wilson.   VIEW THE PROGRAMME

There are fringe activities that help break the ice and forge friendships, competitions, chances to network with industry folk. We will be celebrating too – launching the latest crop of books by SCBWI members, awarding the Crystal Kite Prize and members' achievement prizes.
