Have You Seen the SCBWI Children’s Market Blog?

Alice Pope has left her position at Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market and will be writing a somewhat similar blog for SCBWI.

Here’s what she has to say about the new venture, called SCBWI Children’s Market Blog:

After blogging for four years as editor of Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market (a position I just left), next week I’ll begin blogging full force for SCBWI! (Please pardon our dust–we’re still under construction.)

This blog will be similar to my last–but more so. I’ll post a little more frequently and include more SCBWI news. And, as a member ofSCBWI TEAM BLOG, you’ll find pre-conference news and interviews here as well (leading up to the Annual Summer Conference which starts July 30th. Click here to register.)

Here are a few things I’ll be doing regularly on my SCBWI blog:

  • Interviewing editors and agents
  • Featuring SCBWI success stories/debut authors and illustrators
  • Highlighting great industry blogs
  • Featuring markets/new markets/new imprints
  • Getting your questions answered by industry experts
  • Reporting on SCBWI news and events
  • Hosting writers stopping by on blog tours
  • Sharing my favorite tweets for children’s writers
  • Offering general publishing news
  • And more!

Now here’s what I’d like from you:

  • If you followed my old blog, please follow my new one, too!
  • If you’re a debut author or illustrator–especially if SCBWI had a part in your success–I’d love to hear from you.
  • If you have publishing-related questions you’d like answered here, let me know.
  • If you’re embarking on a blog tour and would like to stop by, drop me a note.
  • If there’s a particular editor or agent you’d like to see featured, I’ll take requests.
  • I was a regular follower of Alice’s old blog, and intend to follow this new one as well.  I’ve added a link to the blogroll.
