Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators
The SCBWI is for writers and illustrators at any stage in their career, whether they are just starting to learn the craft, or have published one or more books. We provide networking and support for all members, and aim to provide professional development opportunities at all levels. The SCBWI provides support and professional development for both traditional publication and self-publication aka independent publication , always with the goal of promoting high-quality content for children and young adults. The SCBWI is recognised by many people in the traditional publishing industry for the high standards that members develop through participating in workshops, webinars, conferences, retreats, competitions, one-to-one meetings, critiques, and networking with peers. There is a professional podcast series, quarterly magazine, monthly Insight e-newsletter, and other resources on the website. SCBWI British Isles developed the Undiscovered Voices anthology , which has resulted in many writers and illustrators subsequently signing with agents or getting books published!
