We are thrilled to announce that Elizabeth Stewart has been selected as this year’s WestWords Pinerolo Illustrator in Residence. Elizabeth will spend a week at the Pinerolo Children’s Book Cottage in the upper Blue Mountains, using the time to work on and refine her picture book The Goose is Out, all whilst receiving one-on-one mentorship from the highly respected publisher, and director of Pinerolo, Margaret Hamilton. The dates of Elizabeth’s residency are still to be determined, but in the meantime we want to congratulate her on her success, and wish her all the best for her week in Blackheath.
Applications now closed!
