OPPORTUNITY: Free Webinar – The Top Five Mistakes That Editors and Agents Most Commonly See in Submissions

The Top Five Mistakes That Editors and Agents Most Commonly See in Submissions and How To Avoid Them!!!

An Incredible International FREE Workinar from TWO Editors and An Award-Winning Author

Saturday May 4th 5.30PM Pacific • 8.30PM Eastern • 10.30 AM Sunday in Sydney

Pretty much every children’s book writer or illustrator has been rejected – often for a very common reason, which if they’d known about might have made all the difference.

Perhaps you are inadvertently self-sabotaging by not knowing these things. Who knows? You will after this workinar!

In this special event from the Children’s Book Academy, you’ll get a mistake checklist. The presenters will explain them, and more importantly, show how you can avoid messing up with them when you submit.

  • Sterling Children’s Books Editor, Rachael Stein, has encountered many big submission boo boos during her career and will share how to be fully prepared before you submit by creating great bios, pitches and submission materials so that you don’t have to make these mistakes too.

She will also be teaching you how to follow submission protocols and follow up appropriately.

  • Mira Reisberg will share her experiences as an editor and former agent of how to submit your work in a way that optimizes your chances for success by focusing on best research practices to find the perfect matches for your submissions and how to format your work correctly.
  • And finally, Hillary Homzie will be showing and telling how to convince your ideal editors or agents that you know your craft by talking about plot and characterization.

It should be a humdinger of a webinar. You don’t want to miss this one and please help spread the word with this link! 

Free is always good. Look at your schedule to see if you can take advantage of this webinar.

Talk tomorrow,




  1. Will this be available afterward on this site or elsewhere? Thanks!
