Date: Thursday 4 June
Venue: Level 3 Atrium, AMDC, Hawthorn Campus

While the publishing industry faces enormous challenges, two areas that are booming are the children and young adult genres. The audiences for these books just can’t get enough. But they are discerning in their tastes; as are the publishers and commissioning editors who are responsible for putting these books on the shelves. Hear from published authors in these areas as they relate their experiences, discuss the latest trends and answer your questions.

Panellists: Jacqui Ross, Mark Carthew, Wendy Dunn
Chaired by: Nic Brasch

This event is part of the Swinburne Writers Festival.
