Kidlit Tips

Writing is 5% inspiration, 5% creativity and 90% determination. Be Determined!

What do I tell newbie kidlit-ters when they’re asking for great kidlit tips and communities?

1.  Twitter is a fantastic source of information and community, connecting like-minded people and sharing industry opportunities.

2.  The CYA Conference Competition gave me a great start – and offers feedback to every entrant. You can read about the competition (closes April) and conference (in July) at http://www.cyaconference.com.

3. Kidlit festivals are run in many major centres around the country and are a great source of information and enthusiasm.

4.  To put things into perspective – and encourage you to persist – this a great post about Children’s Book Publishing – in a Nutshell, by Will Terry.

6.  What to look for in ‘just a standard contract‘, from publishing consultant & literary agent Alex Adsett..
