The verdict on our second children’s publishing conference

I was up at 6.00am on Saturday morning, icing cakes for the second Nosy Crow conference, which took place at the St Bride Foundation in London. And while I will admit to being biased, I think the day had a great atmosphere: a packed house (who’d travelled from as far afield as Dublin, Bath and Glasgow) listened to inspiring, imaginative, insightful and very interesting talks from speakers including agent Hilary Delamere, Waterstones assistant children’s buyer Florentyna Martin, social media expert Adam Tinworth, the Bookseller’s Children’s Editor, Charlotte Eyre, authors including Helen Peters, Tracey Corderoy and Jeff Norton, and members of the Nosy Crow team.

I won’t rehash the whole day (fantastic speeches were delivered, useful notes were taken, intelligent questions were asked and answered, sandwiches and cakes were eaten, wine was drunk, conversations were had and friendships struck…) – instead, I thought I’d just share what some of our attendees thought of the day and said on Twitter afterwards:

A few of our attendees also wrote (more comprehensive) round-ups of the day – you can read two here and here.

Thank you VERY much to all of our speakers for their fantastic talks, and to everyone who came along and made it such an excellent day. See you at the next one!
