Alice Pope, editor of Children's Writer's & Illustrators Market, has been in the thick of things out in Beverly Hills this past week at the SCBWI Summer Conference, where the best and the brightest involved in the juvenile writing world gather to network and learn from one another. In fact, she has been blogging about her adventures nonstop. Check out her blog homepage here.
Of particular interest is this post called All About Agents, where she listens to a panel of agents talk.
Also check out a post about Michael Bourret of Dystel & Goderich Literary. The post is great because Michael really has some time to talk about what he wants, what he's not getting in the slush pile, and what's selling.
