Tickets have been on sale for our upcoming conference, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Children’s Publishing (But Were Afraid to Ask), for just under a month now, and we’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the response so far – it’s shaping up to be a fantastic day!
If you’ve written a book and don’t know what to do next, or you’re interested in beginning a career in publishing, or you want to know the best ways of marketing your books (and yourself) online and in the real world, or you’re just generally interested in everything to do with children’s books, then this conference is for you! We have a day’s worth of experts who’ll be sharing their knowledge on every aspect of the industry and the publishing process – editors, agents, journalists, retailers, social media experts, and, of course, authors.
You can find out more about the day and book tickets here.
Next week, we’ll have a new speaker to announce… and we’ve got some more exciting news today!
Firstly, we’ve decided to extend our Early Bird ticket rate for another two weeks, to give as many of you as possible the opportunity to come at the best possible price.
And that’s not all!
Every day, we rely on the knowledge, support and enthusiasm of librarians up and down the country to spread the word about our books, introduce children to our authors and illustrators, and be cheerleaders for children’s reading. And so we’d like to show our gratitude by offering any librarians interested in coming to our conference a further 20% discount on both the Early Bird and Full Price ticket rates.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer, just email [email protected] (ideally from a library email address, or with some other proof of identification), and I’ll send you a discount code that can be redeemed at the check-out.
The conference is taking place on Saturday, September 13, at the St Bride Foundation in London, near Fleet Street – it’s an all-day event and the ticket price includes morning and afternoon tea and coffee breaks, lunch, and a glass of wine (and homemade cake) at the end of the day, when you can chat to us all.
We hope you can join us!
