Expression OnLine

Expression OnLine is the SCBWI international online newsletter, available for free to all current members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) anywhere in the world. It includes news and short feature items about children’s books, the industry in general as it is practiced in different parts of the world, and the people involved - writers, illustrators, book designers, publishers, editors, booksellers, librarians, teachers, parents, educators, and more.

The Class of 2k7 launched a new website last month at (http://classof2k7.com). The 2k7ers are debut children’s and young adult authors who have come together to co-promote their upcoming books. Class President Greg R. Fishbone explains, “We formed our group because publishers are expecting more from authors these days in terms of marketing and promotion, but as first-time authors we’re already dazzled and overwhelmed by the whole process. By pooling our resources and sharing knowledge, we can accomplish more as a group than any of us could ever do alone.” Greg’s first book, THE PENGUINS OF DOOM, is scheduled for a July 2007 release from Blooming Tree Press (http://gfishbone.com).
