The Scribblers

Tales from our writers' journeys to publication


The home page of the Scribblers – a group of writers on a whirlwind adventure from slush pile to publication – from slush to lush!


The Scribblers are a group of writers who first met on the CBC Online Writing for Children Course with Catherine Johnson in Autumn 2015.
Since the completion of the course in December 2015, they have formed their own writing group, in which all 15 of the course originals still keep in touch and exchange work for critique.giphy.gif
The group has had much success, with many of its members becoming agented within months of completing the course together and, between them, being long listed for numerous writing awards

The blog will follow their journey, with the writers all at different stages of their paths, from newbie writers to (hopefully) established and published writers.
We will also endeavour to use the blog as a stop off point for information, links and even blog posts on the art of writing as well as an up to date list of writing competitions for fellow unpublished writers.
Feel free to sign up for all posts as they are published.
Until then, happy writing fellow scribblers.200w-3.gif
