(Entries open: 1st July to 15th August 2013)
I’ve got hold of 5 videos featuring some of the top names in children’s publishing giving advice to SCBWI members as part of the Undiscovered Voices competition launch of April 18th 2013. The videos are a little on the quiet side unfortunately but they make for a fascinating insight into the publishing world and the speakers have some really good advice to share.
The panel includes; Ben Horslen – Editorial Director of Puffin, Gemma Cooper – Agent at The Bent Agency, Sallyanne Sweeney – Agent at Watson Little Ltd, Samantha Smith – Publisher at Scholastic and Sarah Lambert – Editorial Director at Quercus Children’s Books.
