Welcome to Sydney 2016!

Well the ships have finally moored in beautiful Sydney Harbour. The crew have disembarked and the 2016 SCBWI Sydney Conference is about to start. It’s been a long journey to get here so naturally replenishment was in order. Here is a glimpse of the opening night antics at The Menzies Hotel.

There was convivial catching up with old colleagues and new.


Plenty of hands helping literacy in the developing world with the aid of Room to Read’s Wendy Rapee and Kel Butler.






And some extraordinary spelling.

Over all the whole evening exuded an extremely mellifluous air (thanks to Deb Abela and the launch of her new book, The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee).

Stay tuned for more fun, facts and updates on the sessions as we embark on an even more fascinating journey of creativity.

Rove ya Later!
