Add Your Voice to #LatinxPitch

Hey fellow writers and illustrators, we want to hear from you. What does REPRESENTATION mean to you? Has the lack of Latinx representation in children’s literature affected you personally in any way? As a creator of kidlit, why are you committed to lift up Latinx voices? What are some experiences that have shaped your commitment to represent through your writing or illustrating? How are your children or students affected by the lack of representation?

Please share with us a short video (1 to 2 minutes) where you respond one or all these questions. We want to hear from you whether you are a super-well-known author/illustrator, a debut author/illustrator, or a pre-published creator. Your voice is important.

HOW?

  1. Record yourself on your phone or favorite device. Make sure you are recording in a well-lit space.
  2. Upload to your Twitter account.
  3. Tag @LatinxPitch and use hashtag #LatinxRepresentationMatters . We’ll RT from our account.
  4. If you want us to post from our account send us your video via DM. We’ll post from our account tagging you.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
