What makes an illustration come to life? How does an idea become a story? And once it’s finished, how do you get your story published?
At this exclusive event, award-winning writer and illustrator Oliver Jeffers is joined by a panel of illustrators to talk about how they created the characters and stories that have captured the imaginations of children and adults alike. They talk about where they drew their inspiration from and how they honed their craft, and offer the audience tips on how to improve their own illustrations and get their stories published.
Don’t miss an incredible opportunity to hear some of the leading illustrators of children’s stories in the country discuss what drives and informs their work.

He'll be joined by Benji Davies, illustrator of On Sudden Hill and The Storm Whale, Marion Deuchars, creator of Let's Make Some Great Art, and Jean Jullien, illustrator of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and This is Not a Book. The event will be chaired by author and journalist Hannah Beckerman.
