So, you have a picture book in your hands? Fantastic. But now you're probably coming up against the most important question of all: how are you going to publish it?

Going from a picture book writer to a picture book author is a journey of its own — and the picture book market is markedly different from that of other books. From navigating the publishing life of a picture book to querying agents, you need to be savvy and smart in order to get your book out there.

Luckily, you've got a brilliant guide: Kim Fleming is the best in the game, having worked in children's publishing for over 10 years. In this course, she'll show you, step by step, how to publish your picture book.

  • An introduction to the picture book market
  • What makes a marketable picture book
  • The pros & cons of traditional publishing versus self-publishing a picture book
  • How to query a children's book agent
