This one: to attend the SCBWI-BI (too many acronyms! I know!!) conference. The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is long-established and a great international source of peer support and networking for unpublished (and published) children’s authors. The annual British Isles conference, held in Winchester, is a fantastic opportunity for those seeking publication to get all the info, experience, insight and connections they could wish for.

The BAME scholarship is generously sponsored by the Bent Agency.
