Hello fellow kidlit authors. I have a question prompted by something I read from someone in the business end of publishing on Twitter. It's been a few days, so I'm afraid I don't have a link to it. Before I go into my question though, I'll give a bit of the background that the twitter poster gave for why she specifically feels kidlit is struggling. According to her in 2019 there was a mass exodus of authors, editors, and agents from kidlit genres because of being low balled on advances for so long. Publishing houses were giving their greatest advances to the adult literature authors they were signing. Then the pandemic came along, causing yet more people to leave, orphaning projects and leaving authors scrambling to find others to take them on after they themselves were orphaned. So, my question is this: Is kidlit actually struggling? Does anyone have anything to say to this? I'd be interested to get anyone's take, since I really enjoy writing for this age range. Thank you!
