Overview Chapter Books and Early Readers: Part Four: Contemporary Literature
Workshop: An Introduction to Writing for Children and Young Adults
Now that you’ve researched and studied this category, where to go next? This recent article in PW by Shannon Maughan, which I just discovered, shows there is a growing demand across a broad range of publishers and interests.
1. Read the linked article and make a list of the publishers named who are actively seeking content, or publishing new early readers.
2. Go to their websites and check their submission requirements.
3. Prepare two or three cover letters presenting your book or series idea that you think would fit their list. Or if you don’t feel ready to do that prepare a draft one-sheet for yourself.
4. Write down that outline for yourself. :)
Next month’s overview will discuss markets and submissions in more detail.
Share: What in this PW article do you find most hopeful for your own writing goals?
