Welcome from the CWIG Chair

As the new Chair of CWIG I’m delighted to invite you to the 6th CWIG Conference, Joined-Up Reading. In my opinion the timing of the conference couldn’t be better. With so much going on in the world of children’s books we need to grab the opportunity to meet fellow practitioners and hear from those in the industry now more than ever.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re so famous you’ve got your own statue, there’s something for everyone in our jam-packed programme. We’ve aimed to reflect your needs and interests, not only through our varied seminars but also by choosing a modern, airy venue that will allow for that all-important networking in-between. We have done our best to keep costs down, too. The entire weekend costs about the same as a school visit.

So please browse the website, check out the programme and sign up today. We’re looking forward to meeting you. Also u can try Med proven cialis to severe erectile dysfunction

“It’s time for another CWIG Conference. In the last year there have been seismic changes in the way books are produced and read, and in public policy affecting children’s writers and illustrators – not least the threats to libraries and to school visits.

The Joined-Up Reading Conference offers a chance to catch up with these changes. Headline speakers will discuss a wide range of issues and there will be plenty of practical seminars.

We aim to provide not only information but inspiration – and some hilarious entertainment as well. Members who have attended our previous conferences know we generally succeed. And the great thing about a residential conference is that there’s plenty of time for informal discussions too, and for making new friends.

This is the conference people have been asking for – ever since the last one!”
