Publishing and Editing Conference
January 28-31, 2014
Only the 12 Children's Lit Fellows are invited to this conference, making for an intimate culminating experience. Having completed their projects, Fellows are introduced here to the children's book publishing industry and the world of readers. This 3-day residency includes two days and three nights at the Southampton campus, where the Fellows make their final presentations, put the finishing touches on their manuscripts and series concepts, and celebrate their accomplishments.
Then it's off to Manhattan, for a full day of formal and informal gatherings with agents, editors and reviewers. For those who would like to stay on in New York, the residency is timed to segue into The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCWBI) Winter Conference.
Details on the conference will be forthcoming, but in the meantime, save the date!
