This is an entertaining and interesting blog by an independent children's bookseller in Edinburgh - unfortunately rather far from us in Birmingham, but if you happen to go on holiday there check them out, they're also a publisher!
The SCBWI offers aspiring children's authors all kinds of support, great events, and the company of like-minded people. If you're serious about getting your children's book published, this is a great organisation to join.
If you're interested in a regular children's writers' workshop/critique group in Moseley, B13, please contact me through this website. I plan to start from Sept or Oct 2011, twice a month in the Moseley Exchange. This will be a small group - max 7 people. More details to follow!
