SCBWI South Africa: Meet the Team

The SCBWI South Africa Regional Team and Volunteers

Volunteers from SCBWI South Africa make up the regional team and help local members feel supported and connected to a local creative community of writers, illustrators, and translators of children's literature.


Our Regional Team consists of:


Regional Advisor (RA) - Elaine Ridge

Assistant Regional Advisor (ARA) - Yvette de Beer

Illustrator Coordinator (IC) - Emily House


But our volunteers do not end there. The Regional Team owes an enormous debt of gratitude to the many volunteers who help ensure that our chapter continues to be active and vibrant: Our Webmaster, Elizabeth Sparg, works diligently to ensure that our website is up to date and our Event Coordinators organise local events, providing opportunities to socialise and network with other SCBWI members. Others volunteer at workshops and retreats or with specific tasks.


When you volunteer, you learn more about the industry and your craft. If you'd like to volunteer or if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.


To get in touch with our team, please email Elaine Ridge at: southafrica-ra@scbwi.org
