Anne Ursu, acclaimed middle grade novelist and 2012 Weekend on the Water faculty, recently put out a call on social media for personal experiences with sexual harassment within the children's and YA publishing world. Today, she shared her findings on the pervasive problem. Please take the time to read Anne's important post as we continue to work on maintaining a nurturing and safe community where writers and illustrators may grow and thrive.
For the record, we have zero tolerance for harassment within our region and community. Please let us know if there is ever any problem. In addition, SCBWI's official anti-harassment policy can be found here.
