As writers, it's easy to feel isolated from the world as we sit at our computers for hours on end.
People without the writing bug struggle to understand what we're about, so it's important to connect with like-minded people.
One way to do this, is attend writer's workshops, conferences and meetings or join a writer's group.
Another way is to subscribe to industry newsletters where others share their hints and tips about writing. Publishing information and competitions details are often listed in these too.
PASS IT ON is a weekly, networking e-zine for those involved with or interested in the CHILDREN’S BOOK WRITING & ILLUSTRATING INDUSTRY.
CYA Conference is the place that brings together learning the craft of writing, illustrating, publishing and beyond. It is a professional development day for new and established writers and illustrators of Children’s and Young Adult literature.
