We' re particularly interested in hear from illustrated people whose culture, race or race background and perceptions of different civilizations supports their work.
We aim to give as much information as possible about the publication of children's books. In this section you will find useful contributions from LEE & LOW editorial team, children's literary professionals, writers, illustrators, critics and employees. Themes cover the whole publisher supply chain, from the time before the purchase of a book to the exciting time the author finds out that the book has been purchased, from the time of purchase to the even more exciting time when the author or illuminator has a hardback copy of the book for the first time.
In the Authors and Illustrators section together with those in the Interviews section, papers show the collaboration processes of publication, even after a book has been released, when the author and illuminator join the publishers to promote, market and promote the book in order to increase consciousness and keep it up.

However, the materials will never find a publishers, at least not in their current state. There were many interesting issues and it was great to see so much interest in children's books from new writers and illustrations. If you are an artist or writer, you are in a position to directly influence the sale of your book through self-promotion - in other words....promote, encourage, support!
Folks think that since I'm a book critic, I had a short cut to get my first novel released, and that I had no problems getting my first novel noticed after it was out. First writers and illuminators trying to enter the children's book publisher are confronted with fewer places to which they can submit their works as more and more publishers are closing their door to unsolicited entries.
Some years ago, when she was reviewing a script (unsolicited, by the way) with an writer, she dropped a remark that brought home a disturbing awareness of independent press vs. big houses.
