Bagging a Book Deal

Wednesday 4th July 2018, 11:10 - 12:10

Showroom Cinema 2

Read session report

In 2017, the children’s book market was worth £46.8 million.

Are you a producer or IP developer/owner? Do you have a brand or licence that you believe is perfect for a children’s book? This creative-focused session talks to publishers, licence owners and consultants about how to generate a publisher-facing concept, what publishers are looking for, how to ‘talk publisher’ and who can help.

The aim is to offer a practical guide to pitching, the tools a licence owner needs, the ‘dos and don’ts’ of project development, how to be on the same page with publishing professionals, and a run down of a publisher’s decision-making process.

The focus of this session is on the creative and strategic process of pitching, not contractual negotiations in detail.
