Rollin Thomas Illustrator's Fund
This past August, a beloved member of our Kid Lit community passed away. We've established an illustrator's fund in memory of Rollin, who was an artist, teacher, friend, and inspiration to so many of us. You can help carry on his tradition of encouraging budding illustrators to "Be well & create lots!" Funds will be distributed to portfolio winners at our annual spring conference.
When you register for events in advance, you will be able to add your donation to the event registration. If you'd like to donate directly, please send your contribution to:
Checks can be made out to SCBWI WWA. Please be sure to put Rollin Thomas Fund on the check memo.
