We are so excited to introduce Kristen Rashid, the newest member of our Eastern PA SCBWI volunteer team! Kristen joined SCBWI in 2018 and has been an active member of our Eastern PA region. Kristen is inheriting the role of Blogmaster from Laura Parnum, who will continue to serve as Co-Regional Advisor for Eastern PA SCBWI. Please join us in welcoming Kristen by saying hello in the comments!
A little about Kristen:
Kristen is a board certified art therapist, licensed professional counselor, and Asian-American picture book writer from Philadelphia, PA. She has been leading two critique groups for PB creators for many years, and is the recipient of a 2023 12×12 Challenge scholarship. Kristen’s writing often has SEL components with a STEAM focus, and features kids of color engaging in their everyday lives. She draws story inspiration from her child art therapy work, and from her two daughters with whom she regularly enjoys bedtime read alouds, car ride audio books, family critique group meetings, and library visits. Connect with her on Twitter @KrisRashid.
