Organized by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, this is a chance to chat with a fabulous panel, including authors Jane Yolen, Nicola Morgan, Christina Banach, and me! We're also lucky to be welcoming agent Amber Caravéo from Skylark Literary. Following last year's inaugural SCBWI panel at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the 2015 industry panel question-and-answer will look at "How to survive being published."
This informal Q&A session will take in the challenges of publicity, protecting writing time, and other unexpected bumps that a debut author may encounter – or that veteran authors may encounter as the industry and expectations of self-marketing continue to change.
The event takes place in Charlotte Square Gardens, Edinburgh, Scotland, on Thursday 20 August 2015 from 7.30 - 8.30 p.m. Further details and registration information can be found here on the SCBWI website.
