My lovely editor at Maverick Arts Publishing, Kimara Nye, has produced a video of her top ten picture book submission tips.
Children’s publishing is extremely competitive and Maverick receive thousands of picture book submissions every year. There’s always a bit of luck involved, but there are also lots of ways to make your manuscript stand out from the murky depths of the slush pile.
My biggest tip is to join SCBWI. The events are brilliant, and the camaraderie keeps you going!
