PARTICIPATE IN A Spring Intensive Schedule THAT REFLECTs THE WRITING PROCESS FROM THEMES AND STORY TO EDITING AND REVISION. THIS IS A TIME TO DISCUSS WITH LIKE-MINDED CHILDREN'S WRITERS THE OPPORTUNITIES AND ISSUES INVOVLED IN THE ART AND CRAFT OF WRITING AND PUBLISHING FOR CHILDREN

Wendy Loggia is a Senior Executive Editor at Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books.  Wendy edits middle grade and YA fiction—she’s especially interested in girl-driven, commercial stories, and there’s really no fiction genre she won’t acquire for, although she’s not really a “high fantasy” person. Recent titles she has edited include the #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon; the New York Times bestseller and first in trilogy, AND I DARKEN by Kiersten White; and THE THIRD TWIN by CJ Omololu. Her 2017 list includes THE WHOLE THING TOGETHER by Ann Brashares; ADDIE BELL'S SHORTCUT TO GROWING UP by Jessica Brody, a middle grade debut from SCBWI member Jeffrey Michael Ruby, PENELOPE MARCH IS MELTING about a girl who lives on a melting iceberg, and ONCE YOU KNOW THIS by Emily Blejwas, a middle grade debut about a girl who has big dreams but isn't sure how to make them come true–a manuscript Wendy found in the slush pile. Follow @wendyloggia on Twitter.
