I am the New Editor of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market

I just heard recently that I will be the new editor of Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market starting with the next edition (the 2012 edition). The news is both an honor and a challenge. Long-time editor Alice Pope helmed the book for … well, a long time, and she did a fantastic job over her two decades steering the ship. I am honored to be the new captain.

Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market
has always been a fantastic and popular resource for writers, and has sold more than 500,000 copies since its inception. I realize it is beloved in the kids writing world, so I can only tell you that I will do my best to keep it great and make it the best resource possible. I’m in touch with a lot of children’s writers and agents each week, so I feel like I am up to this challenge. Talleyho, dudes.

(And in response to comments, YES, I will still be editing Guide to Literary Agents and doing this blog.)

The 2011 edition of CWIM
just landed in bookstores!

    Mr. Sambuchino,
    The 2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market is out but both the Age Level and Photography Indeces are missing! Can you post them here or somehow provide them to those of us who purchased the book but were disappointed not to find them at the back of the book?
    Thanks,
    JLZM

    Congratulations! It really is quite an honor.

    Between editing GLA and now CWIM and blogging and writing and that day job thing, I can only assume you have discovered a way to do away with that late night waste of time we mere mortals refer to as "sleep."

    I expect to see your new book, "Who Needs Sleep Anyway?: Reclaiming Those Wasted Nighttime Hours and Becoming Happier, More Productive and Self-Fulfilled" on bookshelves in a year or so.

    (or maybe that lack of sleep is where the idea for hatchet-wielding gnomes came from in the first place…hmmm)

    Congrats, Chuck!
    I love CWIM and I know it will continue to be great in your competent hands. Will you still be editing the Guide to Literary Agents? Hope to meet you at an SCBWI event soon.
    Cheers,
