SCBWI Carolinas Polishing Your Picture Book Conference
This weekend I attended the SCBWI Carolinas Polishing Your Picture Book Conference in Beaufort, SC. One of the many highlights was hearing a panel of editors tell what they are looking for and what they would rather not see. The editors attending were Maggie Lehrman (an Editor at Abrams Books for Young Readers and Amulet Books), Noa Wheeler (an Associate Editor at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers), and Jill Dembowski (an Assistant Editor at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). I will be blogging this week to share some of the tips and warnings given by these three.
