2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market

Today’s short blog is about the 2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market, a fabulous resource for the aspiring author.  This book is a 400 page source that includes insightful articles, sample letters, and lists of valuable information regarding publishers, agents, conferences, and contests.

So why do I mention it today?  Because I finally had a chance to closely scour the pages in search for publishing houses and literacy agencies that I am planning to query.  I wanted to do this for quite some time, but I finally I have had the chance to, and I look forward to typing up my own list to begin sending out again (YAY!  One check off of my to-do list).    

Of course writing always includes research to make sure what you are writing is realistic, but it also requires putting in plenty of time to research houses and agencies that are looking for what you write. 

Always and again, onward and onward!


  1. Ah, the terrifying query process. What will you be sending out? Good luck,whatever it is.

  2. Looking forward to hearing the outcome of these queries. I have to admit, there is something wonderfully "writerly" about the feeling of poring through pages of Children's Writer's Market. Any of the Writer's Market series, for that matter. That's when you know: You really ARE serious. Keep us posted, JaNay!
