About the Children’s Writers and Illustrators Group

The Children’s Writers and Illustrators Group is the largest of all the Society of Authors’ special interest groups with more than 1,300 members. It was founded in the 1960s to address challenges facing writers and illustrators and advocate for better industry standards. It is run by an elected committee of nine authors who lead campaigns, develop resources and organise events. Every Group member can give up to three Reading for Pleasure Awards a year to hard-working and imaginative schools for their promotion of reading for pleasure. Find out more here.

Financial support for authors in need through the health crisis and beyond

Since March 2020, the Authors’ Contingency Fund has distributed over £1 million in small grants to authors facing financial hardship due to COVID-19.

With at least 57% of authors facing financial losses during the pandemic, we have helped people struggling financially due to contractual, employment and event cancellations, others who have lost income due to illness, and others prevented from working because of caring responsibilities.

As the health crisis continues, applications for grants continue to come in, and our emergency funds are running low.

So, if you are in a position to help, please donate via the link below. If you are an author facing financial hardship, please click here to see if we can help.
