A mission statement from the initiator of the conference...
"My concept for the 21st Century Children's Nonfiction Conference is to raise the profile of Nonfiction: to show it can be as creative as Fiction; to highlight changes in the industry; and to help agents and freelance writers and illustrators make connections with commissioning editors and art directors.
I hope the conference also provides a meeting place and forum for publishers, book packagers, development houses, and digital developers to exchange ideas and establish new business models and ways of delivering Nonfiction that excites and educates a young audience. This is also a place for teachers, librarians, publishers, and writers to explore how Nonfiction print and digital products are created and can be used in creative and inventive ways as part of the Common Core.
Above all, I wish to establish a unique conference that provides opportunities to find work, build business connections, and to use one's skills and creativity to create great Nonfiction products for children."
