SCBWI Philasia is a chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) that is based in Manila, Philippines. Our dream is to have a truly regional community of people in Asia with a common passion and a shared commitment to creating and promoting children’s literature.

We organize and host regular events for those who write or illustrate books for young people, or aspiring to do so. Every second Monday of the month, we hold a Booktalk & Group Critique of manuscripts or portfolios. Once or twice a year, we also hold a seminar and workshop on writing and illustrating for children and young adults. Our Q&A with an Author or Q&A with an Illustrator will also be up and running in a couple of months.

Do let us know if you are interested in or plan to join any of our activities. We’d love to hear from you!
