This weekend catch up reading on:

What makes a  children’s book great where authors, illustrators and literary agents discuss content, management and networking for the field of children’s books. What makes a literary translator where an Anglo-German speaking translator shares her journey into translation and freelancing. Moments we have all experienced, from phoning your friends and family for advice to juggling between projects all at once. What makes great blog posts in which the tips are (fairly) simple and straightforward: Choose topics, categorise and focus or combine. What makes great Scandinavian crime novels in the perspective of a literary agent pre and post Stieg Larson. What makes great YA novels featuring wars where love and poetry become the force to win wars personal or national.
