There’s a Children’s Book in Your Future: Shape It, Submit It, See It In Print

Having a children's book published in today's tough market can seem like an impossible dream. But in reality, getting your book idea into shape and into print can hinge on just the right advice from a pro.  Do you need an agent?  Should you connect with an artist?  What about self publishing?  In a two-session seminar, nationally-known author, Peter Mandel, will pass on the
insider's tips you need to know in order to create a marketable first book and get it into the hands of exactly the right gatekeepers in the publishing world.  

A regular contributor to The Boston Globe and The Washington Post, Mandel is the author of eleven books for kids including Bun, Onion, Burger (Simon & Schuster), Jackhammer Sam (Macmillan) and Zoo Ah-Choooo (Holiday House).   

PORTALS is made possible through major funding support from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, as independent state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Council seeds, supports, and strengthens public history, cultural heritage, civic education, and community engagement by and for all Rhode Islanders.
