Rottnest Retreat 2014

It's that wonderful time of year again, when the WA SCBWI crowd pack their beanies and make their annual pilgrimage to the beautiful, salt sprayed island of Rottnest. 

The Rottnest retreat has delivered four days of creativity and fun for WA SCBWI folk since 2009, and 2014 was no different. 

There were old friends and new friends.


Chatting in the sun on our beach front balcony where we spotted a pod of dolphins and a big daddy sting-ray frolicking in the shallows. 

Creative chatter.

Workshops, guest speakers and peer critiques.

Alison Lester and Jane Godwin


Sketch and Scribble

Works-in-progress, published books, portfolios, sketches and cover art.


A wonderful happy surprise birthday celebration for our much loved Frane Lessac. 

Awards, congratulations and celebrations.

Warm hearts, big smiles, good friends.

Bike rides, long walks, star gazing and above all ...

... moon catching.
