Great news! Editor Alison Weiss has come up with the fabulous idea of hosting a monthly Ask the Editor feature on our forums.
She's excited to get to know you, so don't be shy. Head over to the forums and ask your questions! The thread will open first thing in the morning and will remain open for 24 hours. Alison will pop in periodically throughout the day to make sure your questions are answered.
Don't miss this awesome opportunity!
Alison Weiss is an Assistant Editor at Egmont USA. As a kid, it was not unusual to find her huddled under the covers on a Saturday morning with a stack of books rather than downstairs watching cartoons. Reading and writing have always been passions, but sharing that passion with others wasn’t always as easy. That is until she found the children’s publishing world.
Alison has been with Egmont for nearly three years. During that time she’s been fortunate to work with debut authors and multi-award winning, alike. She’s been part of the editorial team on projects by Walter Dean Myers and Todd Strasser, and has worked with authors including Glenn Dakin, Kristin Clark Venuti, Aimee Ferris, and Lynn Kiele Bonasia.
Responsible for Egmont’s Twitter feed (as @EgmontUSA), Alison is regularly involved in sessions where she discusses the publishing industry and answers writer’s questions. And now, she’s delighted to have the opportunity to answer some of yours.
