Europolitan Conference 2019: Take Your Work to the Next Level

The fourth biennial SCBWI Europolitan conference took place May 4-5, 2019 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Swiss chapter, led by Elisabeth Norton did an amazing job organizing a long weekend of workshops, panel discussions, networking and critiques for writers and illustrators across Europe.

The conference was a fantastic opportunity to meet peers and learn from professionals on a variety of topics from diversity in publishing to foreign rights, from making your first pages shine to creating a deeper emotional connection. The faculty included inspiring writers, editors, agents and art directors from the US, UK and Switzerland, all eager to share their advice on how to take your work to the next level. Thanks to everyone who participated and see you in two years!
