Learn the business of kids books from Leonard Marcus


We’re proud to offer a class on the booming business of kids books, taught by a master of the industry, Leonard Marcus! Leonard is the writer of books like The Making of Goodnight Moon: A 50th Anniversary Retrospective and Oscar: The Big Adventure of a Little Sock Monkey. His curatorial work includes ‘The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter’ at the New York Public Library.

In this intensive workshop, students will receive a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary book publishing industry’s most dynamic sector. Each session will focus on a key element of the publishing process: the job (and vocation) of the children’s book writer and illustrator; the critical, supporting roles played by editors, art directors and designers; sales and marketing; librarians; and other opinion makers. Guest lecturers will include award-winning illustrators, writers and editors who provide pragmatic, insiders’ views of the talent-rich and rapidly changing field of children’s book publishing.
