This month our speaker will be Eleanor Collins of Floris Books.

What's so hard about writing for children?

Creating children's books is more difficult, more satisfying -- more specialist -- than many folk realise. This is a quick look at why, and at how to navigate some of the obstacles.

Eleanor Collins is Senior Commissioning Editor at Floris Books, Scotland's largest children's publisher and 2016 Saltire Society Scottish Publisher of the Year. She has many years editing experience in adult fiction, adult non-fiction and academic books, but especially in children's.
