Calling all aspiring picture book authors or illustrators! Discover has an event coming up called Drawing Stories on Thursday 17th May, which aims to bring professionals from the picture book publishing industry together with those people who are trying to make their way in. All levels and experience welcome and it is completely free.
Drawing Stories – Join Discover Children’s Story Centre on Thursday 17th May for an evening of illustrator and author workshops ranging from portfolio consultations to discussing the process of writing and insights on publishing. This will be followed by an open format Q & A discussion led by a diverse panel of self-published authors, experienced illustrators, and literary agents with inside knowledge of getting your picture book out there. There will be an opportunity to ask our panelists any questions about getting into the industry. Stay on to enjoy drinks, networking and live performances.
Discover aims to nurture new diverse voices and better reflect our visitors’ backgrounds/experience. We particularly welcome attendance from people currently underrepresented in children’s publishing.
