#PassThePen is a brand new initiative from BookTrust Represents and Waterstones Children's Laureate Cressida Cowell to promote emerging authors and illustrators of colour.
From 16-20 November, high-profile hosts will hand over their Instagram accounts to up-and-coming creators to give them a chance to showcase their work.
