Last week we announced the return of our sell-out conference, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Children’s Publishing (But Were Afraid to Ask), taking place this September. Tickets are selling fast and our line-up of speakers is almost complete – there’ll be fantastic talks from literary agent Hilary Delamere, Waterstones Children’s Book Buyer Florentyna Martin, Nosy Crow’s Managing Director Kate Wilson and Head of Picture Books Louise Bolongaro, authors Helen Peters and Tracey Corderoy, social media expert Adam Tinworth, and more on the way!
Our programme for the day will be announced soon, but we’d also like to hear from you. What would you like the day to cover? What burning questions about children’s publishing would you like answered? Are there particular areas you think we should include, or speakers from other backgrounds you’d like to hear from? Whether you’re an aspiring writer, interested in starting a career in publishing, working in a related field – a library, perhaps, or a reading charity, or bookshop, or school – or just enthusiastic about children’s literature, this conference is for you. So if you’re coming along, let us know in the comments underneath this post what particularly interests you, and we’ll try to cover as much as we can on the day.
The event is taking place all day on Saturday, September 13 at the St Bride Foundation on Fleet Street in London. Early Bird tickets are available now (the ticket price includes morning and afternoon coffee breaks, lunch, and a glass of wine and homemade cake at the end of the day) – you can order them online here, or with the simple form below.
We hope you can join us!
