All You Need to Know to Pitch an Original Board Book with Naomi Kirsten, Senior Editor at Chronicle Books

There is a common misconception that board books are always picture book conversions. That is not the case! In fact, original board books are an increasingly popular format due to their cross-market channel resonance and appeal to infants and toddlers, not to mention their parents, caregivers, and gift givers. In this content-rich, one-hour webinar, we will explore key themes in the original board book realm and derive lessons from what has been successfully published. Chronicle Books Senior Editor Naomi Kirsten will also walk attendees through select board books that she has developed with authors and illustrators, and share lessons and tips to impact your pitch and project’s evolution.

Written critiques by Naomi Kirsten are 40€. You may submit one board book manuscript or a board book dummy no sooner than 2 weeks after the webinar. Dana Carey must receive your work by December 15, 2019.
