What does it take to successfully write and publish a children’s book? How are books for kids different from books for adults? Join us for a panel discussion moderated by Alex Kourvo, where we will trace the development of a book from idea to publication. Panelists include picture book author Rhonda Gowler Greene, Middle Grade author Merrie Haskell and YA author Patrick Flores-Scott along with editor Sarah Rockett from Sleeping Bear Press.

This is part of the monthly Emerging Writers Workshops, which offer support, learning, and advice for local authors. Each month, two weeks after the workshop, there is a meet-up where the instructors will read samples of your work and offer advice and assistance in a casual, supportive atmosphere.

Do you have a completed manuscript? Consider submitting it to the library’s imprint Fifth Avenue Press.
