Emma Dryden is one of children’s publishing’s most accomplished editors, having worked on hundreds of books for young readers, including board books, picture books, non-fiction, middle grade fiction, and young adult/teen fiction and fantasy. Emma has edited some of the field’s top authors, including Ellen Hopkins, Paul Zelinsky, Shelia P. Moses, Susan Cooper, Alan Katz, David Catrow, Lee Bennett Hopkins, Karma Wilson and David Diaz.
Recently, Emma sat down for a video chat with CBI Publisher Laura Backes. In this, the second of three parts, Emma weighs in on the latest publishing trends, and discusses how authors can connect with teens and tweens.
