We invite those of you with and without publishing experience to join us in discussing the tricky questions we all face:

Do I need an agent? A creative lawyer? How and where do I submit work? How do I know when my work is ready? How do I interpret rejections? Will this waiting EVER end? How do I transition into a new format, genre, or market? Do publishing trends matter?

The Picture Book Salon is pleased to announce that two remote special guests will join the Picture Book Salon discussion on Paths to Publications, including Minju Chang, an agent from BookStop Literary Agency, and Aimee Bissonette, a picture book author (North Woods Girl and Miss Colfax’s Lighta) and lawyer who represents children’s writers without agents. So bring your publishing questions for these industry professionals!!!!

EVENT WILL BE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE INCARNATE WORD – PLEASE NOTE: LOCATION HAS CHANGED YET AGAIN. THE PB SALON WILL BE HELD IN THE NURSING BUILDING RM 104. THIS IS OFFICIAL AS OF FRIDAY, APRIL 22, AT 3:44 PM.

 

***

The Picture Book Salon is designed to offer novices and published veterans alike creative inspiration and stimulation. Sessions will not include critique or a full lecture format. Rather, Salon meetings will typically center around open discussions, sometimes with a brief opening from a guest. So grab your notebooks and sketch pads–and join us for the Picture Book Salon!

Moderated by Charlotte Sullivan Wild

Inspired by the Picture Book Salon in Minneapolis, MN, founded by Molly Beth Griffin.

Location: University of the Incarnate Word – Frank Nursing Building #104
