Picture Book Summit is an annual, world-class online conference for picture book writers and illustrators that takes place on the first Saturday in October. Emma is a co-founder of this conference with author/illustrator Katie Davis, author/12×12 Founder Julie Hedlund, editor Laura Backes and Children’s Book Insider co-founder Jon Bard.
With keynotes and workshops from bestselling, award-winning authors and illustrators, plus other learning and networking opportunities for aspiring picture book authors around the globe, all from the comfort of home, this is the one conference for children’s writers you don’t want to miss.
Not all children’s literature conferences are the same. Our team has invested in a robust, online learning “classroom” so we can bring you award-winning, well-respected speakers and workshops LIVE. This means you’ll have opportunities for Q&A, interaction with other attendees, and live customer service throughout the entire event. Submission opportunities? Of course! We coordinate picture book submission opportunities for our attendees every year.
Picture Book Summit is not only the least stressful and most high-value conference to attend, but the best investment you’ll make in your writing career all year long. Skip the airport lines, travel expenses and stress. Instead, join hundreds of other participants at the Picture Book Summit the first Saturday of October, year after year.
