“Writing Picture Books: An Author’s and Editor’s Perspective”
More than twelve years of experience making products for children—books, toys, games, and puzzles—has given our special guest speaker, Liz Mills, a unique insight into the business as both a writer and an editor.
She’s sat on both sides of the desk, hiring authors and illustrators and selling her own work. And she’s also watched the picture book market evolve and transform from a small section of retro classics to an explosion of color, creativity, and voice across bookstore walls.
How do we navigate such a vast market? How do authors and illustrators work together and what is the role of an editor? Will our stories make a splash in an ocean of bestsellers? Are picture books rapidly becoming a thing of the past?
Liz looks forward to hearing your thoughts and questions and discussing the wild and wonderful world of picture-book publishing!
Please join us for an encouraging evening as we tackle these questions and more.
No RSVP required. Questions or comments? Please contact Angelina Hansen: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there!
