Making Jewish Children’s Literature the Very Best It Can Be
The Whole Megillah is pleased to list editorial and book doctor/coaching services to help you get your manuscript into its best possible shape.
With more than 25 years of experience editing and publishing children’s books, most recently as Vice President, Publisher of Atheneum Books for Young Readers and Margaret K. McElderry Books, imprints of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, Emma has a deep understanding of the business of children’s books within an ever-changing publishing landscape. Her expertise is working with authors to help define, enrich, and craft their work to make it viable for the current marketplace. She is a skilled fiction, fantasy, and poetry editor and my interests range from picture books and graphic novels to humorous middle grade, high fantasy, and edgy teen fiction–and anything in between!

Every manuscript deserves a pair of eyes other than the author’s to make sure every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed. Barbara has a discerning editorial eye and ear, honed during workshops at Vermont College of Fine Arts where she earned her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults, and at Highlights Foundation workshops.
