KIDLITVIC MEET THE PUBLISHERS

 

Many of you will know that I’m fortunate to be part of the KidLitVic Meet the Publishers team. The aim behind the conference is to have an event in Melbourne where YA and children’s writers and illustrators have the opportunity to meet publishers, editors and agents. I think we succeeded brilliantly with publishers, editors, agents and attendees flooding the State Library Victoria at our second conference in May 2017.

This year:

  • 180 children and YA writers and illustrators attended
  • Attendees came from Victoria, NSW, QLD, SA and Tasmania
  • We had 90% more assessments so we could offer attendees the opportunity to book more than one assessment
  • Nineteen publishing professionals generously shared, advised and encouraged us all. This was 7 more than the previous year.
  • Every speaker returned, who appeared at the conference in 2016,, which makes me particularly happy
  • Because we like to mix it up, we offered workshops. These were a huge hit and booked out quickly.

Our team consists of Coral Vass, Jaquelyn Muller, Nicky Johnston and me. I’ve never worked with a team of such all-rounders, tireless workers, super-smart, funny (in the humourous way) women. People have asked me who did what, so here you go!
