Every year we invite industry professionals to join our faculty to provide breakout sessions on craft, publishing, marketing, and the art of being involved in children’s literature.
OUR MEET THE 2019 FACULTY PAGE provides bio, picture and session descriptions but, by far, the best way to know a writing or illustrating professional is to read their work.
In researching the agents on our faculty, please go to their agency website. There you can learn how to submit [although we will be providing you with guidelines for this conference] and what they want. And, although editors rarely have websites for their publishing companies that do the same, you can get an understanding of what interests an editor or an agent by reading the books they have recently sold or acquired.
You will also be attending breakout sessions by authors and illustrators who have published and have the membership designation PAL [standing for Published and Listed–click on the link for more membership information].
