Aspiring Picture Book Authors

On Saturday I spoke to an amazing group of close to 50 aspiring picture book authors. All of us are authors, some published and some not yet published. All of us are aspiring, some of us hoping to be published for the first time, and some of us hoping for that next book.

They were there for information about writing picture books, tips that would improve their writing, tips on research and marketing, encouragement, reassurance, and connection with others who write for children. I hope that I was able to offer some of that to you.

I get so much from meeting and speaking to other children's writers. It renews my spirit, and reminds me of all the things that I've learned myself over time. So many people have given me good advice and direction, and have encouraged me along the way. I hope I can pass that on to others.

I hope that you all went home having gained something new. Thank you, Margaret, for your hard work and enthusiasm in planning the day! Good luck to all of you!
