Children's books writing seminar

Between the Lines is a one-day seminar which aims to show budding writers and illustrators how to take the first steps towards making their ideas a published reality. You will learn about every stage of the process - writing and illustrating techniques, getting an agent, targeting your chosen audience - from the people who do it for a living: professional writers, illustrators, agents, and editors. You will also have the opportunity to meet these experts for a personal critique to help you make the most of your ideas. Writers can meet with an editor, an agent or a published author, while illustrators can meet with an agent or illustrator. In addition, the writer and illustrator who submit the bestwork on the day will be presented with a year’s membership to SCBWI.

Guest Speakers:
Jane Yolen, Keith Gray, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, Adrienne Geoghegan, Faith O’Grady, Julia Churchill, Clodagh Feehan, Paddy O’Doherty, Mary Webb and Judi Curtin

When: Saturday September 11th 2010

Where: South Dublin County Library and Red Rua Arts Centre, Tallaght, Dublin 24.

Cost: Seminar Day = €55 for CBI/ SCBWI members or €65 for non-members
