The picture book market grows more competitive by the day, with publishers being more selective with acquisitions. This interactive workshop will discuss techniques to revise your drafts to perfection, including improving the pacing of the plot, enhancing the character development, and elevating the overall emotional resonance. We will also discuss the state of the current market.


Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen is an award-winning children’s book author whose books include Chicks Rule, The United States vs. Jackie Robinson (2019 ALSC Notable Children’s Books List), Duck Duck Moose (CBC Children’s Choice Award Finalist), Tyrannosaurus Wrecks (Junior Library Guild Selection), and the Purrmaids chapter book series. She has visited schools and libraries for the past 15 years, talking to kids about writing, reading, and finding their voices.
Sudipta lives in Princeton, NJ with her husband, three children, and an adorable pug named Roxie. You can learn more about her and her books on her website
