To finish off the Day of interesting speakers at the Sydney SCBWI Conference Susanne Gervay sprung into action providing heaps of laughter with an illustrator duel and charity auction for Room to Read between Sarah Davis and James Foley. It was hilarious fun. Where on earth does Susanne get her energy from?
Here are some pictures of the two and the lovely work they did. Children’s Picture Book Writers are so generous!
Some more lovely photos… and Essie White’s Keynote Speech and Rachel Noble.
The last day of the conference was full of Master Classes and Critique sessions. Vivian, Marie Marshall and I were in Essie White’s The Marriage of Text and Art Master Class.
Some more fun photos to finish off the last day of the conference with friends such as Dhana Fox and wandering the Botanical Gardens and walking the streets back to the hotel.
Up early next morning Marie, Vivian and I headed with our bags for the airport. Marie back to the US and Vivian and I for Auckland New Zealand.
Tune in for the next post of first days in the sunny city of sails Auckland, NZ.
Looks fun. I wish your photos were bigger though.
Hi Tina, Glad you like it. Sorry I find if I make the photos too big I won’t be able to get more on. Will see what I can do.
I am enjoying your sharing the conference. It sounded like an excellent time for all. Have fun with Vivian.
Thank you Pat. Yes we had a lot of fun at the conference and I am so happy that Vivian has made it down to New Zealand now with me.
Great job Diane, chronicling our adventures. Hope you both have oodles and gobs of fun!
Thank you Maria. Glad you like the post We are having lots of fun right now. New post soon.
Loving the fact that I have a personal event planner, photographer, and PR person…all rolled up in the person of my dear kidlit critique buddy, Diane! Thanks so much, my friend…I love your posts that keep folks informed about Where in the World are Vivian, Pippa, Sarah, and those tobogganing Otters.
Thank you dear friend. I’m just loving having you here with me. You might want to add hair stylist as another bow to my hidden talents… lol. )
The three of you must have had a blast!!
Hi Penny, oh yes we did. And I am enjoying having her with me now.
Glad Aunt Viv is having so much fun!
