Some say it’s worth the detour, I’d say it’s worth the trip: the first SCBWI Europolitan Conference in Paris.

I know it’s worth the trip, because as the Regional Advisor of SCBWI The Netherlands I am one of the organizers of this amazing and inspiring conference for children’s book writers and illustrators. We bring you a conference packed with workshops, presentations and opportunities to share your work. Attend sessions that meet your interests, whether you’re published or unpublished, an illustrator and/or a writer.

•    Work with our faculty in small groups to develop your craft
•    Register for a professional critique to get individual advice on your projects
•    Meet fellow members and potential critique partners
•    Enter some friendly contests and get your work noticed
•    Join us for our Children’s Literature Cocktail Party and Illustrators’ Gallery

Optional activities include a Thursday afternoon Scrawl-Crawl through Paris where we will visit historical places that feature in the interactive storytelling app Beware Madame La Guillotine!, and a peer-critique brunch on Sunday. Both are for writers and illustrators!
