About this Event:

A three-hour master-class on children’s publishing.

Old friends on opposite sides of the fence, Leah Thaxton, children’s publisher at Faber and Faber, and Julia Churchill, of the Greenhouse Literary Agency, talk through everything you need to know about getting your children’s book published. That ranges from what an agent does, to what a publisher looks for, and includes everything in between and afterwards. It is a 360-degree guide to writing, pitching and publishing your children’s book – from picture book right through to sophisticated young adult fiction. We welcome back this popular three-hour session, including your chance to ask questions. Fun, revealing and incisive.

2pm – 3pm The Agent
What agents do, how to get one and what they look for. This talk combines a look at the children’s book business – how it works and prevailing trends, top tips on how to find the right match for you, and finally an in-depth analysis of what agents look for in a stand-out submission.

3pm-4pm The Publisher
What publishers are looking for and how the publishing process actually works –  what drives publishing decisions, the power of the retailers, an insight into the packaging and marketing of books, building classics of the future, the commercial versus the literary.

4pm-5pm Q&A session/panel discussion
