Emily Feinberg, Associate Editor, Roaring Brook Press, Macmillan
After earning her masterâ€™s degrees in Childrenâ€™s Literature and English Literature from Simmons College in Boston, Emily joined the editorial team at Roaring Brook Press where she has had the opportunity to work with artists and writers such as Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Jason Chin, Bagram Ibatoulline, Nick Bruel and Yuyi Morales, among others. Emily works on picture book, chapter book, middle grade projects and claims she will "never turn down the chance to look at a humorous, realistic young adult novel." She enjoys "quirky, voice-driven picture books and middle grade and nonfiction for young readers," but warns writers that "young adult fantasy is not her thing."Recent books include Coyote Moon and Highway Hawks by Maria Gianferrari, Snow Beast Comes to Play by author-illustrator, Phil Gosier, and The Inn Between by Marina Cohen.
Claire Dorsett, Assistant Editor at Roaring Brook Press, Macmillan
Claire's love of literature led her to pursue a BA in English from
Cornell University, where she was involved with campus publications The
Daily Sun and Rainy Day literary magazine. She then completed the
six-week intensive Columbia Publishing Course before finding a home at
Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan Children's Publishing
Group, assisting Vice President and Publisher Simon Boughton. She has
worked on a range of projects during her time at Roaring Brook,
including Lane Smith's middle-grade debut
Return to Augie Hobble, Steve Sheinkin's National Book Award finalist Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War, and picture books The Skunk and Ned the Knitting Pirate.

emerging readers in partnership with the Scripps National Spelling Bee,
as well as a picture book about fishing by Tommy Greenwald and David

After earning her masters degrees in Childrenâ€™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 Cooperâ€™s Big Cat, Little Cat, a tender and beautifully illustrated picture book about life, loss, and cats, as well as Maria Gianferrariâ€™s nonfiction picture book Coyote Moon (illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline) and Marina Cohenâ€™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.
