Tapestry of Voices


Reach, Include, Belong — Equity & Inclusion in Children’s Literature


What is Tapestry of Voices?

An initiative in SCBWI North/East Bay for those who want to REACH, INCLUDE, and BELONG by committing to:

  •   • Create children’s literature that reflects the rich tapestry of the world and the diversity of all the people who live in it.
  •   • Celebrate all voices, and finding ways to center under-represented voices in our professional conversations, organization, and work.
  •   • Support each other’s careers across all identities and experiences. Read More »
