With submissions to agents and publishers opening in earnest in February I’ve begun to put together a new portfolio. This is why I’ve been a little distracted and not quite so active on the socials.
I’ve been developing a new style and exercising my thoughts attending intensive courses with Australian Writers Centre. So I have researched the literary agents I would love to work with. Very scientifically, basing it all entirely on the illustrators who I admire and are represented by them.
In this process I've also listed the Australian publishers who I see my work fitting neatly into their lists. Most of course don’t take unsolicited manuscripts but it is good to have goals.
Soon I’ll be updating my portfolio and bringing it all together as a package for attendance at KidLitVic again this year. The line up this year looks great, I'm hoping to meet a lot of people!
