Authors Guild Launchpad: Kit Lit

Authors Guild Launchpad is designed to help authors of forthcoming books with marketing and publicity. As an educational and information exchange program, Launchpad offers a variety of webinars and written resources, as well as small cohorts that meet privately with marketing and publicity experts.

The spring 2024 pilot session will serve authors of children’s books—including picture books, chapter books, middle grade, and young adult.

Webinars will be free and open to the public, but you must be an Authors Guild member to participate in a cohort. The cohorts will meet privately with experts in marketing and publicity to gain more personalized advice and to network with each other.

Meetings and webinars will take place in March through June 2024. Recordings of the webinars and other resources will be available to all Authors Guild members.
