Launch of Angie’s Reviews
The SCBWI Committee are very excited to announce the official launch of Angie’s Reviews which will be happening at our Marketing Magic event in Sydney on the 20th April.

At this point you may be wondering ‘Who is Angie?’,  ‘What will she be reviewing?’ and ‘Where will these reviews be showcased?’ The exciting answers to these questions will be answered below.

Who is Angie?
Angie Schiavone has a Master of Arts in Children's Literature and is the former children's book reviewer for The Sydney Morning Herald. She has been a judge for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards, a restaurant reviewer and editor for the Good Food Guide, and a cookbook editor. She's also a mum to two book and food-loving kids.

What will she be reviewing?
From this point onward, any SCBWI member who submits a notice of a new book on the SCBWI website will have the option to have their book considered by Angie for a review. Only new books by Australian and New Zealand SCBWI members will be considered. The information you supply about your book will be forwarded on to Angie who will make up a shortlist each month of books that she would like to read and consider for review. 

If your book is chosen you will be contacted and asked to organise for your publisher to forward a review copy to Angie. Those of you who have already submitted books this year have automatically been considered and the first group of authors/illustrators have already been notified. Please note that due to the large amount of books submitted not all books can be chosen for a review and once review copies have been forwarded it is entirely at the discretion of the reviewer as to whether and when they will be reviewed.

Where will the reviews be showcased?
Angie’s Reviews will be published on the SCBWI AusEast/NZ blog and publicised on both Facebook and Twitter.

So if you are a SCBWI member and have a new book coming out soon make sure you CLICK HERE to submit your book to Angie’s Reviews.
