TAS Professional Development Weekend, 27-28 October 2018

Under the godmotherly guidance (and occasional wand zapping) of Susanne Gervay, Regional Adviser extraordinaire, the SCBWI TAS team is hard at work organising a SCBWI Professional Weekend in Hobart.

When?     27-28 October 2018

Where?  Day 1: Performance/Screen studio, Moonah Arts Centre, 23-27 Albert Road, Moonah, TAS.

               Day 2:  Writing and illustration critiques to be held at the new Tasmanian Writers Centre premises, 24 Davey Street Hobart

Day 1 will include a keynote address from Maryanne Ballantyne, Publisher at Black Dog Books  (Publishing Today - What we are looking for from Tasmania?). Sessions on the crafts of writing and illustration will follow. A panel of Tasmanian talent will then speak about their journey to publication, then we will have a pitching session to industry professionals. The final session will be how SCBWI connects you to the industry.

Day 2 - individual writing and/or portfolio critiques, 20 minutes face to face with publishers or other industry professionals. Writers and illustrators who live out of Hobart may apply to have their critiques on Saturday 27 Oct at the Moonah Arts Centre or at the Writers Centre early on Sunday 28 October.

Cost:         Day One:  SCBWI members $100,  non members, $195.

                  Critiques (Day one or two):  $60

Only participants who have attended the Day One seminar will be eligible for critiques.
