Briony Stewart Bootcamp

Born in Perth, Western Australia, Briony Stewart is the internationally published author and illustrator of several award-winning books for children. 


At seventeen, Briony received a scholarship from the Art Gallery of Western Australia towards studying a double-degree in Fine Art and Creative Writing at Curtin University. After graduating she published her first book, Kumiko and the Dragon, which went on to win an Aurealis award for Children’s short fiction. 


In 2012, Briony completed a 9-month creative development fellowship in the U.K after being selected by the British Council as one of five young, Australian artists excelling in their creative field. Since then, Briony Stewart has published numerous successful titles. Most notably her book ‘We Love You Magoo’ was selected as a CBCA Early Childhood Honour Book for 2020.


Passionate about fostering creativity in Australian children, Briony now lectures on children’s literature at university and conducts talks and workshops with children across Australia.  She currently lives and works as an author and illustrator in Fremantle amidst the chaos of two cheeky toddlers, a plant-mad husband and a very silly dog.

    The Bootcamp is a day spent with Briony. During it, you will receive feedback on your work in small group sessions, have time to work on your illustrations, and then have a progress session where they will give you further feedback. There will also be a discussion panel and a Q&A session. 

    Places for the Bootcamp are strictly limited to four people per group, with each editor working with two groups. 

    You do not need to be coming to the conference to join a bootcamp.
