Description

Aspiring children's author? Or an artist with dreams of creating a children's book? Or maybe you have a great young adult fiction novel ready to go and want to know how to get an agent? Or how to develop your career after book one or even two?

BookTrust Represents is proud to offer this free one-day training event for aspiring children’s authors and illustrators of colour, providing a variety of taster sessions including working with agents, confidence-building for creatives and how to stay published, with tips and tricks for sustaining a career in children’s books.

This event is part of a series of training events for aspiring children’s authors and illustrators of colour, and will be followed by topic-specific workshops over the next three years.

Organiser BookTrust

Organiser of BookTrust Represents Training Day

BookTrust is the UK’s largest children’s reading charity. We are dedicated to getting children reading. Each year we reach 3.4 million children across the UK with books, resources and support to help develop a love of reading.

We get children reading in lots of different ways, but our priority is to get more children excited about books, rhymes and stories – because if reading is fun, children will want to do it. We run nationwide programmes – like our flagship programme Bookstart. We reach millions of families across the country each year with books, resources and advice to encourage parents and carers to start reading with their babies right from the beginning.

BookTrust Represents is a three-year project created to promote children’s authors and illustrators of colour.
