What is Picture Book Summit? It’s a fantastic day-long conference for picture book writers, that happens entirely online, so there are no travel or accommodation costs, and you can attend in your jammies if you want. It is hosted by author, editor and educator Emma Walton Hamilton, author and founder of the 12×12 picture book challenge Julie Foster Hedlund, author and CEO/School Director of the Institute for Writers Katie Davis, and editor and co-founder of Children’s Book Insider and Writer’s Blueprint Laura Backes Bard.
They will be presenting stellar workshops, and will be joined by other outstanding workshop leaders as well as agents and editors (some of whom are offering submission opportunities to conference participants) PLUS (as if all that wasn’t enough) keynote speakers who are some of the top picture book creators around.
There is a cost to attend this online conference, but keep in mind that the only cost is for the conference itself, unlike in-person conferences for which there is usually accommodation, meals, and travel as well.
