Advocate Art at SCBWI Jan 19 2015

News

Advocate Art have always been keen supporters of the ‘Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators' and Caroline Burns and Lauren Woods, who already helped many of our talented children's book illustrators to become published authors as well, decided to presented a series of workshops for a wider audience of SCBWI members.

These workshops were designed to help un-published artists and authors write and illustrate their own children’s book to present to publishers.  Entries were submitted in spring, Caroline and Lauren helped each candidate with editing and art direction.  There was then the chance to sit down and discuss the changes and comments in October in person, which culminated in a celebratory gathering at the SCBWI party where the winning entry was announced. Great experience for everyone involved!
