Children’s Books Ireland provides a wide range of supports to authors and illustrators, as well as storytellers, translators and publishers who also have crucial roles in the sector.

We look to make connections between artists, helping to grow the community of practice. We provide information and resources for artists at all career stages and professional development opportunities, based on needs identified in consultation with artists.

We would like to know what the current needs & challenges are for those artists working, or seeking to work, in children’s books in Ireland.

With this in mind, we are now seeking consultation with artists as we shape our new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy, alongside our strategic plan for 2024-8.

This will be held on a ZOOM call, Tuesday 28th of November from 6-8pm.

We would like to hear from:

  • children’s artists

  • authors

  • illustrators

  • storytellers

  • poets

We welcome attendees at all career levels, from aspiring or unpublished to those who are well established in the sector.

Please register your interest by signing up on the below link, by Tuesday the 21st of November.
