So You Want to Work in Publishing...

In case you failed to notice, there's a new kidlit editorial blog in town, by the name of Must Love Books. This was apparently a private blog for a long time and only recently has the mysterious T.S. gone public. So the post entitled So you want to work in publishing is a good start. I think it pairs nicely (as Alvina Ling pointed out) with Cheryl Klein's earlier version. So if you've book luvin' teens asking you how one goes about becoming an editor, here's what to hand them. Honest-to-God, this happened to me. A kid I knew asked about this and I printed off Cheryl's advice. Now's he's an intern at FSG. These guys know what they're talking about.

Thanks for the shout-out! It made my morning.

Thank God you mentioned that you were a fella. That's prevented a possible future confusion of gender.

HAHAHA! Yes, we males seem to be a rarity in the children's book community. Or at least we are at Little, Brown. I just recently received an email asking "all the guys in the department" for their opinion on something...there were only 5 of us.
