"Are you a knowledge junkie? The person your friends trust to explain things clearly, and make them fun? Nonfiction publishers dramatically outnumber fiction publishers, and they are hungry for unique, kid-friendly content – especially when the subject is science!

In this session, award-winning author L. E. Carmichael introduces you to the wide –and wild! – world of writing about science for kids and teens.

Explore the three major streams of science publishing, and find your perfect fit. Bring your notebook – and your questions!"
