I am part of CWISL - Children's Writers and Illustrators in South London - and our aim is to support and promote good children's books and their authors and illustrators. We're actively building a wide network of links with local libraries, schools and community organisations across South London, developing a range of events and meeting our readers.

One of our popular initiatives is ShoutAbout, an online magazine for young writers and illustrators. We've also run creative writing festivals called ShoutSouth! and ShoutWest! for children from various London schools. 

Our membership and our initiatives are growing all the time.  Find out more here
