The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to foster public appreciation of children’s books and to support the vibrant community of people who create and promote them.
If you would like to support our organization can do so in three ways:

Each year the SCBWI grants between six and eight scholarships to SCBWI members who are on the cusp of a breakthrough but could not otherwise attend the conference.
