Every year acquiring editor and art director Dr. Mira Reisberg and a special acquiring editor co-teach the Craft & Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books e-course at the Children’s Book Academy. The course is highly interactive with much personal interaction, many bonuses, and fantastic feedback and submission opportunities from the co-teachers PLUS a range of editors and agents. And every year, more and more students get published and/or agented directly from this course. Right now over 375 books have been published or contracted from former students.

This year the Academy is extremely excited about their action-packed course because Mira is co-teaching with super smart Stimola Literary agent Allison Remcheck who will be able to offer even more guidance from both an editorial and submissions perspective.
