Editor Phoebe Yeh from Crown Books for Young Readers will demystify the book-making process whether you are writing and/or illustrating a board book, picture book, middle grade novel, graphic novel teen novel or writing nonfiction. What happened from the moment of receiving your manuscript to the miraculous day when you receive your printed book in the mail! How has diversity and inclusion changed the landscape of children’s publishing? How has the pandemic changed the way we make, promote, publicize and sell children’s books? This session will answer these questions and more!
