Part of our mission is to encourage interest in Latin@ children’s, MG, and YA literature and to share perspectives and resources that can be of use to writers, authors, illustrators, and other stakeholders in literacy and publishing. We hope that our Road to Publishing series was helpful to writers and illustrators currently working on projects. The posts are listed here to help inform anyone going through the process. Please contact us or leave a comment if you have any questions we haven’t answered or if you’d like to see us address a part of the process not covered here. Good luck with your writing and illustrating! We hope to add your project to our book lists!
