Panel Discussion: From Agent to Author–How a Children’s Book Gets Published


Last week I spoke at the Morrison Library here in Charlotte as part of a panel about children’s publishing. Joining me were Lisa Williams Kline, Tracey Adams, and Quinlan Lee. The event was hosted by the Charlotte chapter of the Women’s National Book Association. We had a good crowd who asked lots of great questions. Moderating was the talented Betsy Thorpe.

We discussed lots of things: Do you need an agent? How do you get one? How do you fit writing into the rest of your life? What should you say/ not say in a cover letter? How is an illustrator selected?

Lisa and I discovered we had both attended Vermont College, though at different times. I’m always glad to meet other writers, especially¬†ones who live nearby!
