Equity and Inclusion

We Need Diverse Books

There is a huge gap in diverse representation in children’s literature. We support diverse writers and illustrators who want to produce literature that reflects their own lives and stories.

Are you an aspiring writer or illustrator of children’s books? We invite you to join the New Mexico Chapter of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

We encourage and promote our membership to reflect our diverse state which includes initiatives of recruitment that increase equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Every child deserves to see themselves in books.

If you are interested in writing or illustrating for children and young adults and are from a group historically marginalized or underrepresented in children’s literature, please join us for meetings and events held monthly via ZOOM. Email for more information.
