Accomplished author Richard Scrimger was one of our past guest speakers.
We explored the rewarding yet sometimes frustrating minefield of author-editor relationships. The good, the bad, and the ugly — we’ll discuss what makes for a successful relationship; how this dynamic has changed over the last 20 years; and what you can do to ensure positive relationships in your own editing career.
RICHARD SCRIMGER is the award-winning author of more than twenty books for children and adults, including The Nose from Jupiter, Zomboy, Viminy Crowe’s Comic Book and The Wolf and Me. When he’s not writing or talking about writing, Richard teaches at Humber College for the School of Writers and gets laughed at by his adult children — there are four of them.
Richard has been asked to speak about writing and literacy around the globe: in Europe, Abu Dhabi, the U.S., and across Canada. He judges writing contests like the popular Toronto Star Short Story Contest and the prestigious Governor General Literary Awards.
His book, Lucky Jonah, published by Harper Collins, won the following accolades:
- CBC Best Book of the Year
- OLA (Ontario Library Association) Best Bets
- Red Maple Award Finalist
- Ruth & Sylvia Schwartz Children’s Book Award
- Saskatchewan Young Reader’s Choice Award – Snow Willow Award
