monster list of childen’s book editor interviews, blogs, and more

LAST UPDATED ON May 25, 2009. For the latest information, please visit the Children’s Book Publisher Directory

Do you have a massive case of web-head–a medical condition caused by prolonged surfing of the Internet? Do symptoms include dizziness? Blurred vision? And a sudden loss of ability to Google?

Look no more. I have a cure. I’ve done a lot of the work for you and compiled it here. As I find more interviews and blogs, I’ll add to the list.

Don’t know what to do with this information? Read post, [step six – find an editor ->step six – find an editor] from my crash course.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not hold me responsible for misspelling of names or location of the editors. Editors change publishers often (and sometimes they get hitched and change their names). Subscribe to Publisher Weekly’s Children’s Bookshelf newsletter or visit Vista for updates on promotions and moves. I do my best to keep this current and accurate, but if you have corrections, please leave a comment. Thanks!

ALSO DO NOT ASSUME AN EDITOR’S PRESENCE ON THIS LIST MEANS HE/SHE ACCEPTS UNSOLICITED SUBMISSIONS. LOOK UP THE PUBLISHER’S GUIDELINES FOR THAT INFO.

I DO NOT AUTHORIZE OR CONDONE SPAMMING EDITORS.
