From Writer to Author – The Intrepid Journey

Join us for a panel discussion with award-winning children’s authors, MG Leonard and Peter Bunzl, literary agent Jo Williamson and commissioning editor from Usborne Publishing Becky Walker as they discuss the writers’ journeys to publication – from the first burst of inspiration to writing a finished manuscript, how they found time to fit in writing, how they dealt with rejection at different stages of the process, and how they eventually found their agents and went on to achieve publication and success. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A.

Tickets: £10 SCBWI members, £16 non-members
