Authors Live: Illustration Slam

Pens, pencils and paints at the ready as we invite you to create stories using pictures with top author/illustrators Debi Gliori (Witch BabyNo Matter What, What's the Time Mr Wolf?), Chris Riddell (Goth Girl, Hugo Pepper, Edge Chronicles and Ottoline) and  South African illustrator Piet Grobler (Fussy Freya, Please frog, just one sip! and Makwelane en die krokodil).

Watch as the illustrators battle it out to see who is the quickest on the draw and who can conjure up the best and most unique drawings to inspire you to write stories. We look at how flags and pictures can be the starting point of the story and what it is like to be an illustrator.

This Authors Live also features a special appearance by Olympic medallist and Commonwealth Games athlete and Commonwealth Class ambassador Eilidh Child!
