Children's Writers and Illustrators Who Also Work In the Industry

Featured last month in Publishers Weekly, this article by Pooja Makhijani, Children’s Writers Who Wear Multiple Hats, was a fascinating look into how for a number of notable creatives working in children's books, their day jobs are ALSO in children's books!

(And they have day-jobs, something we don't talk about a lot, but maybe we should.)

With shout outs and weigh-ins by Daniel Nayeri, Mallory Kass, Eric Smith, Andrea Davis Pinkney, John Cusick, Andrew Arnold, Grace Maccarone, Arthur Levine, Jonah Newman, and Patrice Caldwell, it's well-worth reading.

Illustrate and Write On,
