Docklands Library Performance Space

Held in Melbourne, this SCBWI event aims to create a vibrant community of kids’ book creators by providing the chance for members and non-members to meet three industry professionals, be motivated and inspired, develop your craft, learn about the world of publishing, network and of course have fun.  We also have a brief show and tell to kick off the afternoon where members can talk about their latest good news whether it be a new book or publication, an award or a contract or maybe a shortlisting or prize in a competition.

At SCBWI VIC’s next event on 27 July, three superstars from the publishing industry will be speaking. Our guest speaker, Ann James, runs Books Illustrated and has been creating books for 40 years. Anna Pignataro is a writer and illustrator of over 60 books, with more in the pipeline, and author Susanne Gervay, who is the regional adviser of SCBWI Australia East and New Zealand, will also be sharing her advice about creating books for young people.

There is a yummy afternoon tea included in the cost and a chance to mingle, all with a lovely water view of the Docklands harbor. The Docklands library facility offers tiered comfortable seating with excellent audio visual to accompany each speaker which is perfect for when speakers take questions.
