Children’s Book Industry 101: Terms, Conventions, and How It Works 

Brief description: A nuts and bolts session for writers and writer/illustrators including standards for traditional publishing (formatting, word counts for categories, conventions, what’s pushy, what’s polite), how the industry works (role of agent vs. editor, publishing houses and what they offer, large house vs. small vs. regional), and how we get paid (advance, royalties).
