On this week’s Kidlit Distancing Social, CBI Publisher Laura Backes discusses the interplay between words and illustrations in picture books, and shares how writers can create picture book manuscripts that are optimized for illustrations.
Laura also checks in with an update about the impact of the current situation on the publishing world, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers. And our poll question this week: Who’s Your Favorite Illustrator?
