Pen&inc. – A new magazine and listings guide to celebrate diversity and inclusion in Children's Publishing

Pen&inc. is CILIP's new guide to diversity in children's publishing. Its aim is to improve choice for readers and opportunities for authors, illustrators and publishers from all backgrounds and abilities. It's about highlighting the positives and looking at how things can change for the better - and we want librarians to be at the heart of that change, alongside the publishing and bookselling industry.

Library professionals have a role to play in ensuring that children experience different perspectives and see themselves reflected in the books they read. Children's books should be inclusive and Pen&inc. wants to make it as easy as possible for you to identify books that can be part of your library, ensuring shelves are stocked with great books that feature a range of characters, from diverse creators.

We hope you enjoy Pen&inc., but more importantly, we hope you find it useful. The next issue will be released in September of this year. For more information about advertising, email and for editorial enquires email
