About SCBWI South Africa

SCBWI South Africa offers a variety of meetings. We are continuing our fortnightly zoom meetings for our writer members (Fridays at 9.30) and for our illustrator members (first Wednesday of the month 10.30). But we have also begun our ‘in person’ meetings – workshops and presentations

Our aim is to offer opportunities for you to develop your craft, to provide information on publishing opportunities, competitions and virtual book fairs. We also aim to build up a strongly supportive community of children’s book writers (up to YA), illustrators, translators and language editors. For more information, please contact south
