  Enroll in Course

Ariel Richardson is back with us for a Critque-N-Chat session, following her live event. Not only can you register and learn about sending in a Novelty book or other project, you can submit your project for critique and Ariel will help you package it and provide feedback. How's that for a true mentoring session straight from the editor's desk.

So... details on this opportunity includes Registering for your Critique-N-Chat and signing up for your online chat time. Unlike previous events, all of this happens in one course platform, where you will see and receive updates and news and notifications immediately for your sessions. Love it! Right? (Or you are saying, It's about time, Sadler!) Either way, this is such a great way to get the professional feedback you need on a project that means a lot to you.

Manuscripts have been shared with Ariel.

Chat Live on July 8 @ 2 PM EST.

Your manuscript will be returned, following the online chat.

That's it. This option is limited to 15 critiques so register quickly before they are gone.

I’m an Associate Editor in Children's at Chronicle Books in San Francisco. I primarily edit board books, picture books, and formats / novelty, working on titles like Bunny Slopes, This Is How We Do It, and Masha and Her Sisters. I love books with a diverse or global perspective, books that celebrate the power of the imagination, and books that push the boundaries of traditional bookmaking. I’ve been a children’s bookseller for about ten years, at three different independent book stores on two coasts. I also have a master’s degree in Children’s Literature from Simmons College in Boston, where I took courses on all genres of children’s literature.
