Own Your Voice

KidLit Nation’s Own Your Voice initiatives are empowering diverse writers and illustrators of color to tell their own stories by providing assistance with professional development through free/low cost classes and workshops, scholarship opportunities, and mentorships. To help with this effort, please consider participating in our fundraisers and contests or donating to KidLit Nation.
