The Business of Kids' Publishing


Corte Madera Store - $105



You have written a children’s book… now what? Join Mat Heagerty, children’s book writer, to guide you through the wild world of getting your book published.

In this workshop, students will come away with a basic understanding of what publishing is like for children's book authors, including self-publishing, working with a small press, or working with a traditional publisher. We'll discuss querying agents, what being on submission is like, and the importance of choosing the right collaborator. 


Mat Heagerty is a comic book writer, rad dad, and all around chipper dude living in Boise, ID. He writes awesome comics like 'Lumberjackula' (Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers), ‘Martian Ghost Centaur' (Oni Press ), ‘Unplugged and Unpopular' (Oni Press) & the forthcoming graphic novel 'Indoor Kid' (Oni Press 2024). Mat is currently adjunct professor at Boise State University where he teaches a course on Writing for Graphic Novels. Mat is dyslexic, and struggled in school, now he often travels the country talking to elementary and middle school students about the strengths of learning disabilities and creative collaboration.
