There's been so much going on this Autumn that we haven't had time to arrange a social so if you've been waiting – here it is! Come along and meet other SCBWI writers and illustrators and find out what's going on in the kidlit publishing world over drinks and a bit to eat. New SCBWI members – this is perfect way to meet people – especially potential critique partners. Hope to see you there!

This month our guest author is Cliff McNish. Here's a bit about Cliff… 

“McNish is one of our most talented thriller writers, with an ability to make your spine crawl and your heart pound with his stylish prose.” – Amanda Craig, THE TIMES.

Cliff was born in Sunderland, a city in the north-east of England. When his debut middle-grade fantasy novel THE DOOMSPELL appeared The Bookseller immediately hailed him as ‘a great new voice in writing for children.’ The Doomspell Trilogy went on to become a huge international success, translated into 26 languages worldwide. His ghost story BREATHE was voted in May 2013 by The Schools Network of British Librarians as one of the top children’s novels of all time, and also made the top 100 combined adult and children’s list in that category.   

His more recent humorous and heart-warming dog novel GOING HOME, about four dogs stuck in a rescue centre, is loved by children 7-12. ‘This book is a must for animal lovers … amusing and heart-warming.’  The School Librarian.
