WHAT CYA CONFERENCE DID FOR ME:
I heard about the CYA conference in 2013 and entered the Aspiring illustrated Picture book category and won 1st place!
The following year I came second in the same category.
I found the whole experience extremely positive and a real confidence boost.
The categories are judged by professionals in the industry, the feedback sheets are priceless for offering ideas and encouragement for your practice and the support for fellow aspiring writers/ illustrators makes the whole experience a safe and exciting one
