The Gotham Writers Children's Lit Conference took place on May 20-21, 2023. We are planning another Children’s Lit conference in May of 2024. Stay tuned!
It will unfold like this:
Panels and Presentations (Day 1) — Take a peek behind the publishing curtain with eye-opening panels and presentations. You can see the full breakdown on the conference schedule. These days are for people who are ready for publication or just gearing up to enter the publishing process.
Pitching Roundtables (Day 2) — Each roundtable will have two agents and a group of pre-selected writers with book projects. You spend the day with your "table"—pitching, reading pages, and discussing your work. There will be tables specializing in middle grade/young adult novels and picture books, with room for graphic novels as well.
Anyone can attend the Panels and Presentations, but you must apply and be selected to participate in the Pitching Roundtables.
GOTHAM WRITERS WORKSHOP is a creative home in New York City and online where writers develop their craft and come together in the spirit of discovery and fellowship. We’ve been teaching creative writing since 1993.
