Came across an article about this year's Ballarat Writers and Illustrators Festival 2011. With a focus on writer's, illustrators and publishers for children's and YA books, the festival will showcase the theme of Words and Pictures. It is said that "Illustrator's, picture book writers, poets and writers of books for older children and YA's will find plenty to be excited about." As for aspiring writers and illustrators, there will be plenty for you too - especially being introduced to how the industry works and what publishers and editors are looking for.
Get your pens and imaginations warmed up, because festival attendees are invited to submit the first page of their unpublished work for critique by representatives of three publishers of children and YA books.
