Joseph-Beth to host children's writers' workshop

Liz Waniewski, an editor from Dial Books, will lead a workshop for authors interested in getting their children's books published from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 27 at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 161 Lexington Green Circle.

Waniewski will discuss the submission process, writing strong query letters, current trends, and why manuscripts are accepted and rejected, and she will give some first-page critiques, as time permits. The event is limited to 40 participants.

Early registration is $55 for members of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators, $65 for non-members. The cost increases by $5 after May 16.
