The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is sponsoring an exciting writers’ event on June 11th here in Lexington. It’s a great opportunity to meet and hear two editors: Maggie Lehrman, Senior Editor at Amulet Books and Abrams Books for Young Readers, and Kate Larken, Editor at MotesBooks. They’ll share what catches an editor’s eye and why, discuss pros and cons of publishing with large and small presses, give you a chance to ask questions, and critique randomly drawn first pages of manuscripts provided by attendees.
Even if you don’t write for children or young adults, it’s an opportunity to hear from the pros and a chance to network. Plus, Kate Larken publishes adult books, as well as young adult, at MotesBooks.
