presents our inaugural full-day
PYI Pitch Perfect!
SUNDAY October 19th, 2014
Canada's oldest and largest conference for building the craft and business of writing, illustrating and performing children's culture has teamed up with Humber to bring CANSCAIPers a specialized PYI follow-up workshop and critique day with top editors and art directors.
Who will benefit most? This workshop day is for CANSCAIPers who have a completed manuscript or portfolio ready to go out to market. Learn how to get your current project published, and how well it fits with industry needs.
From picture books to young adult novels,
we want to see your work!
The morning will begin with an industry panel focused on
CATCHING THE EDITOR/ART DIRECTOR'S EYE.
Michael Solomon, art director with Groundwood Books, leads a discussion with Shelley Tanaka of Groundwood Books, Stacey Roderick of KidsCan Press and Tara Walker of Tundra Books on what makes a project stand out.
The afternoon session will include:
Writers will be required to submit a short synopsis of their manuscript and a 500 word sample before the conference.
- two critique sessions with two different leaders
- peer feedback
- questions with your table leader
Illustrators will develop illustrations for a piece of text over a six week period before the conference. The finished pieces will be reviewed during the first critique session. Personal portfolios will be reviewed during the second session.
Additional details will be posted here and sent to participants
