Society of
Children's Book Writers
and Illustrators


New England is fortunate to have so many active PAL (published and listed) members activity involved. Here are some ways we are trying to give back:

PAL Coordinators – NESCBWI is currently in the process of finding PAL Coordinators to run programs in our sub-regions. We were recently excited to add Jessica Bayliss to the team as the coordinator for Southern New England. CT and RI PAL members can contact Jessica at For more information about volunteering as a PAL Coordinator, click here.

Virtual ShopTalks – During COVID, we have decided to bring these talks online. PAL members interested in being paid to give a talk should fill out their information here. We are trying to set up these Virtual ShopTalks every three weeks.

Read Local – NESCBWI wants to celebrate the new books of our PAL authors with our Read Local. If you are a SCBWI member, you can send your information to Stacy Mozer at (subject: Read Local). Please include a link to your SCBWI Speakers Bureau profile, a cover photo, release date, publishing company, book level, and one buy link for the book.

We are always looking to add more opportunities. If you have ideas, don’t hesitate to reach out to our PAL Coordinator and Regional Team!
