#HFGather Writer Chat: Sarah Aronson & editor Sarah Jane Abbott

Jun 24, 2020 | HFGather, The Business of Publishing

Two wonderful Sarahs joined us for this week’s #HFGather Writer Chat: Sarah Aronson and editor Sarah Jane Abbott. Some of the discussion involved:

  • The joys of connecting with a new manuscript
  • Art notes: sometimes there are things that picture book authors need to let go of
  • Being encouraged by very detailed rejections
  • The power of books that make you cry
  • Editors like relatable characters

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
