The UK children’s publishing industry is thriving. With year-on-year sales showing huge growth and a boom in the number of titles being published, the children’s books business seems to be undergoing an exciting renaissance while its adult counterpart struggles with a digital angst. So what better time to hear from experts in this bustling sector of publishing!

SYP Scotland will be hosting three speakers, each focusing on one of the three broad age ranges that children’s books fall into: design manager Leah McDowell from Floris Books for picture books; literary agent Lindsey Fraser from Fraser Ross Associates for Middle-grade; and writer Liz Bankes for YA/New Adult. We’ll be getting the insiders’ take on the core concepts and recent developments of each area, as well as the hot topics under discussion.

So come along and get a behind-the-scenes insight into all things children’s publishing as we take you through the age ranges.
