AGM

The CWIG AGM is open to members only. It is free to attend, but you will need to reseve a space by purchasing an AGM only ticket. The AGM will consist of the chair’s report. The committee would like to nominate Keren David and Curtis Jobling for election to the committee and Shoo Rayner as Chair.

Any alternative nominations must be supported by two CWIG Members and be sent in writing to the Secretary no later than Tuesday 17 October, accompanied by a letter signed by the candidate expressing willingness to serve.

Please email Jo McCrum on jmccrum@societyofauthors.org with any issues that you may like to raise in advance.

BRINGING UP BING by Ted Dewan, chaired by Julie Middleton (Purple Frog Media)

Ted Dewan will present the story behind his Bing series of picture books (David Fickling Books) and the adaptation for the BBC hit animated series. The presentation covers the creation of the Bing books as well as some highlights and lowlights along the ten-year road to making it to screen. Most importantly, he will speak of what he wishes he knew when he started off.

Ted Dewan, a former CWIG chair, has written and illustrated over 30 books for children, including the Greenaway Honourable Mention Crispin the Pig series, as well as illustrated non-fiction books. He formerly illustrated for most British newspapers, and is currently in the early stages of developing a new animated television series.

Audio Tickets
We are offering limited remote access tickets (audio only) for members who are unable to attend. Participants can listen and email questions during the event, but we will need to liaise with you in advance to arrange the technical details. Please book as normal and you will be sent further instruction.
