The winner of this auction will receive a picture book critique with Kate Messner, including an editorial letter overview and specific notes on the manuscript. After you’ve had a chance to revise, Kate’s editor Melissa Manlove will take your manuscript to the Chronicle Books Children’s Editorial Meeting, where potential acquisitions are discussed. If one of the editors is excited about it, great! If not, Melissa will share the group’s thoughts and feedback with you so that you can revise again and submit the project elsewhere.
