NJ SCBWI First Page Read

There is still room available in the NJ SCBWI First Page Read on Sept 20. It will be held at the Wyndham Hotel and Conference Center in Princeton, PA. The first page session is $30 and the dinner afterwards costs an additional $30.

The editors who will attend are:

Sarah Dotts Barley is an associate editor at HarperCollins Children’s Books and HarperTeen.

Authors she works with include Georgia Byng, Holly Cupala, Gwendolyn Heasley, Geraldine McCaughrean, and with her editorial director, Donna Freitas and Joyce Carol Oates. Recent books that she has edited include THE GLORIOUS ADVENTURES OF THE SUNSHINE QUEEN by Geraldine McCaughrean, DEAR BULLY: 70 AUTHORS TELL THEIR STORIES, edited by Megan Kelley Hall and Carrie Jones, and DON’T BREATHE A WORD by Holly Cupala.

Ariel Colletti assists Caitlyn Dlouhy on a wide variety of young adult, middle grade, and picture books.

Ariel moved to Atheneum Books for Young Readers this week at Simon and Schuster.

She is particularly enthusiastic about finding endearing and adventurous middle-grade novels and contemporary YA, but finds herself drawn to anything with an original, irresistible voice. Before coming to Simon & Schuster, Ariel worked at the independent publishing company Square One Publishers.

Ariel wrote the article “Falling in Love… With Characters” in the most recent issue of Sprouts.
