This class is full and registration is closed.

Still eager to write and publish that children’s book you have dreamed about? This workshop introduces newcomers to today’s world of children’s book publishing—the markets, the genres, the formats and audience niches, and the publishing venues—and recommends a few rules of the road and tried-and-true shortcuts that make navigation easier. Participants will have the opportunity to share a work-in-progress. Please bring a bag lunch, as we will meet during the lunch hour.

Esther Hershenhorn authors picture books and middle grade fiction, coaches children’s books writers, and recently served on the Board of Advisors of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
