CWILL is an organization of professional children’s writers and illustrators located in British Columbia. You can find the perfect member to visit your school, library, or institution through our speaker’s list.
Authors and illustrators set their own fees for classroom visits so be sure to clarify costs with the artist ahead of time. Fees typically average $250 to $350 per classroom visit (one-hour presentation).
You can apply for funding through ArtStarts' Artists in the Classroom or Artists in Education programs.
