chicken house

Are you a new writer with a brand new children’s book up your sleeve, tucked in a drawer, or just sitting on your computer? If so and you’re wondering what to do with it next, read on.

We are thrilled to announce that Kesia Lupo and Rachel Leyshon from the excellent Chicken House Publisher have once again agreed to come to the Bradford on Avon Mini Book Festival. So that’s not one, but two fantastic editors from Chicken House joining us for the day!

Kesia and Rachel are offering 20 minute editorial one-to-ones for aspiring authors. To qualify you must have written a full manuscript of a book for children and be able to send the first 3 chapters and a synopsis at least two weeks ahead of the day (Saturday July 13th).  

Contact the library to book your slot. Please note booking opens on Monday 10th June and not before. Consider this your Heads-up! And look lively. There are just eight places available between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm.

Bookable from 10th June: Phone or email the library 01225 863280 /

Oh yes, and here they are, the wonderful Rachel and Kesia!
