So, you’ve written a book (or books!) for kids or young adults, but need to get your head around the industry? This workshop will provide an overview of all the parts that aren’t writing or illustrating. You’ll learn how to research and approach publishers or agents, what to include in your pitch to show you’re knowledgeable, what to expect from publishers, the roles that booksellers play (along with how you can work with them) and more!
