PICTURE BOOK EDITING - Emily Feinberg

Learn All You Need to Know About Working with an Editor

Emily Feinberg

Associate Editor, Roaring Brook Press
What does an editor do when working on a Picture Book manuscript, fiction or nonfiction. Emily will be with us to walk us through her editorial process. What are her biggest concerns, what excites her, and what she is looking for? A lot of great ideas that will help you become a better editor of your own picture book project.

A Bit More About Emily. After earning her masters degrees in Children’s and English Literature from Simmons College in Boston, Emily joined the editorial team at Roaring Brook where she has had the opportunity to work with artists and authors such as Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Jason Chin, Bagram Ibatoulline, Nick Bruel and Yuyi Morales, among others. Emily works mostly with picture book, realistic middle grade, and nonfiction titles. Coming up, she has Elisha Cooper’s Big Cat, Little Cat, a tender and beautifully illustrated picture book about life, loss, and cats, as well as Maria Gianferrari’s nonfiction picture book Coyote Moon (illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline) and Marina Cohen’s spookly middle grade novel, The Inn Between. While she is always looking for solid, voice-driven picture books and middle grade, she also particularly loves nonfiction for young readers of all ages. Emily is not an editor of fantasy. In her free time, Emily enjoys playing with dogs in fields and learning as much as she can about outer space and space travel.
