I rarely cover the children's market on this blog, since I haven't directly worked in that area of publishing and I consider it the province of my colleagues.
But here are the 3 sources I frequently recommend when asked:
- Alice Pope's SCBWI blog. Alice is a longtime industry expert on the children's/YA market.
- KidLit.com. Agent Mary Kole runs this excellent blog for readers and writers of children's literature.
- Adventures in Children's Publishing. This blog is run by a group of writers. I particularly love the worksheets featured here (great for all writers).
Please add in the comments your favorites!
Also, this month, Writer's Digest is offering a premium product collection, Writing for Children & YA, which offers a range of resources for writing better and getting published in this specialized market. Click here to check it out!
