It’s the SCBWI conference this weekend! We’ve been extremely busy organising everything. I can’t wait to meet our keynote speakers – David Almond, Leigh Hodgkinson and Sarah Davies – and see all our other speakers in action. I’ve been putting the finishing touches to my talk about creating resources for schools which I’m doing with Candy Gourlay and George Kirk. I also have my fancy dress outfit ready for the party where we’ll be dressing up as book characters we love!
