It’s a Different World Out There

Have you been considering writing for young audiences — whether picture books, chapter books, middle grade, or Young Adult (YA)?

Public radio veteran Kitty Felde will moderate and join a panel of professionals who will talk about this important niche in the publishing world and answer your questions.

When it comes to writing and being published, what’s the difference between picture books, chapter books, middle grade, and Young Adult (YA)?

Topics include:

  • Do you need to draw your own illustrations?

  • What are the trends?

  • Do you need an agent to get published as a children’s author — and what about self-publishing?

  • How do you market a children’s book?

  • What reviews are important?

  • What are libraries’ role in kidlit publishing?

  • What’s SCBWI?
