Foreword by Patrice Lawrence

Packed full of inspirational articles from successful writers, illustrators and publishing experts, the Children’s Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook once again serves up the best independent advice to writers for children of all ages. Covering all aspects of the publishing process, across the full range of formats and genres, it will appeal to self-published writers as well as those seeking an agent-publisher or crowdfunded deal. Inside are up-to-date contact details for literary agents, publishers, prizes and grant-giving bodies, societies and creative organisations that support writers and illustrators.

Universally recognised as the first port of call for all writers wanting to improve their work and their chances of getting published, this Yearbook contains an ‘impressive raft of advice and notes on every aspect of the business’ (Quentin Blake).

New articles for 2021:
H.L. Dennis Writing mystery and adventure stories
Julia Green Writing short stories for children
Isabel Greenberg How to create a graphic novel
Rebecca Hill What are children’s publishers looking for?
Hannah Sheppard Submission to a literary agent (the when, what and how …)
Thomas Taylor Do judge a book by its cover
Lucy van Smit Parent your inner child: what kind of writer are you?
