On the CWIM blog, there's a great post where two literary agents who represent children's books—Tracey Adams of Adams Literary and Kate Schafer of KT Literary (formerly of Janklow & Nesbit Associates)—talk submissions, rewrites and what's needed for a killer submission.
The post is one of many recent additions from editor Alice Pope, who's spent the last several days partying networking with everyone who's everyone in the children's writing world at the SCBWI Conference in Beverly Hills. She has lots of posts and pictures up on her blog, so check it out.

The WD poetry blog, Poetic Asides, tackles haiku writing this week.

The latest issue of Writer's Digest arrived in my inbox today, which means it will be mailed out to subscribers and bookstores before long. It's packed with great information, including an interview with Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), and several articles about getting your money's worth as a writer (and don't we all want to do just that?).
