For Artists & Writers

These are the pages to visit to find out more about the business of writing and illustrating for children.

This exciting page For Illustrators Only is coming soon. Special links to other websites of interest to illustrators, as well as hints, tips, and helpful information to assist artists wanting to illustrate for children will be found here.

The Getting Started and Writer's Tips pages are full of information to help writers and illustrators wanting to learn some of the basics of this business. How do you find out where to send your work? What do I do next? What about illustrations? Do I need to copyright my work? How can I keep someone from stealing my work? Do I need an agent? The answers to these questions and much, much more can be found on this page.

Beyond the Basics is information for published authors and illustrators. Need help finding information on how to negotiate a contract? Just sold your first book and have no clue what to do next? What about promoting your book? How do you give a good school visit? Check out this page for much helpful information.

The Transcripts pages are loaded with helpful information about all aspects of the business of writing and illustrating for children. Each transcript is from an actual workshop session that took place in the #Kidlit chat room on this website. New transcripts are added as new workshop sessions are held.
