Following last year's inaugural SCBWI panel at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the 2015 industry panel question-and-answer will look at "How to survive being published"

This informal Q&A session will take in the challenges of publicity, protecting writing time, and other unexpected bumps that a debut author may encounter – or that veteran authors may encounter as the industry and expectations of self-marketing continue to change. 

Don't miss this chance to chat with our fabulous panel, including authors Jane Yolen, Elizabeth Wein, Nicola Morgan and Christina Banach, plus agent Amber Caravéo from Skylark Literary
