A free online video project from CBCA NSW Branch and SCBWI

Monthly on the first, at 12.00 noon. Starting August 1, 2020

Tune in here to watch.

Welcome to Story Scoop?

Join us online on the first day of every month for a free scoop!

All welcome - teachers, librarians, kids and adults who love books for kids and are curious about their creators and characters. The monthly video can be seen on our Facebook page and on the Story Scoop website page. Each month authors and illustrators will give a sneak peek into their inspiration, creative choices, artwork and the story behind their stories. Invite your friends and colleagues along and we will mix it up each month with three segments including; Illustrators Corner, Picture Book Nook, Junior Fiction Gems, Middle Grade Magic and Sneak Peek.

What is the aim of Story Scoop?

  • To provide an interesting, inspiring and useful resource for schools, teachers, parents and libraries to learn about books for kids and their creators.

  • To celebrate new projects by our creative SCBWI/CBCA members.

  • To connect SCBWI/CBCA authors/illustrators with schools, libraries, teachers, parents and kids.

New episodes will be uploaded at midday on the first day of each month from August 1, 2020. Previous episodes will remain available on our Story Scoop page so you can share the joy over and over again!
