You have a great idea! Now get it published! (Webinar alert!)


Julie Dietzel-Glair, Kathy MacMillan and I have prepared a webinar for the Maryland Library Association. We were supposed to present it last week, but due to the snow, the webinar has been rescheduled to Thursday, March 5, from 2-3 pm.

You Have a Great Idea! Now Get it Published!

Do you want to write a book or article but don’t know where to start? In this 1-hour webinar, three published authors of resource books and articles for children’s librarians will share the ins and outs of getting published in journals such as School Library Journal and with publishers such as ALA Editions and Libraries Unlimited. Learn about the publishing opportunities that are out there for you, what you’ll need to include in your proposal, and how to get from idea to proposal. Join us and jumpstart your publishing career!
