What does it take to become a children’s author? What are children’s book publishers looking for? Let our panel of experts show you what you need to do to get your manuscript published!

Our panel of industry professionals includes award-winning authors Melanie Florence and Cary Fagan, as well as bookseller Maria Martella (Tinlids) and publishers Lynne Missen (Publishing Director, Fiction, at Penguin Random House Canada Young Readers) and Semareh Al-Hillal (Publisher, Groundwood Books).

Two additional seminars are scheduled for late fall: Get Published: Illustrator’s Edition (November 16, 2019) and The Business of Writing: Selling Your Books, Selling Yourself (November 23, 2019).

“I attended this seminar and it was a great chance to be surrounded by professionals in the industry and get real answers and insights. The Book Centre is an excellent connector, and the opportunity to get exposure with publishers, editors, agents and other writers is inspiring.”
— Lucy Leiderman, author of the Seven Wanderers Trilogy

Each participant will receive a copy of the CCBC’s bestseller, Get Published! The Writing for Children Kit.
