SCBWI Gold Coast Meeting

Qld Meeting.jpg

Squeezing in a SCBWI meeting before the busyness of the Commonwealth Games hits the Gold Coast next week, eleven members enjoyed a chilled out but fruitful couple of hours together over coffee and lunch on Sunday 25th March.

With two new members in attendance and one hopeful, we covered topics as diverse as ‘agents – yay or nay?’, suicide in YA books, the latest updates from SCBWI central, and pitching your manuscript to a publisher – what to write and how to make your pitch stand out – including the one sentence pitch. Members brought along questions and samples of their work to share and valuable advice was offered by the more experienced members.

Watch out in the SCBWI newsletter for our next meeting and event.
