Society of
Children's Book Writers
and Illustrators

SCBWI INW Volunteers

The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is an international organization run almost entirely by volunteers. We are the only group in eastern Washington and North Idaho that educates, supports, and publicizes authors and illustrators of children’s and YA literature. We rely on the time, talent, and energy of our members to continue our exceptional programming.
