All pre-registered members of Kidlit Summer School 2015 will be able to watch a special Q&A Webinar with Editors Jenne Abramowitz and Rotem Moscovich!
Jenne Abramowitz is a Senior Editor at Scholastic, where she mainly acquires chapter books and middle grade fiction. Some of Jenne’s current projects include the Starring Jules series by Beth Ain, The Yeti Files by Kevin Sherry, The Doll Graveyard by Lois Ruby, Peter Hannan’s Petlandia, and Into the Killing Seas by Michael P. Spradlin. Jenne looks for commercial voices and high-concept plots. She loves mysteries, modern fantasy, humor, adventures, ghost stories, quirky towns and quirky families, secret societies, hidden identities, and anything with a really juicy secret.
In her role as Senior Editor at Disney-Hyperion, Rotem Moscovich feels lucky to work with so many talented picture book and middle grade novel creators, including Ann M. Martin & Laura Godwin, Brett Helquist, Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Mac Barnett, Adam Rex, Greg Pizzoli, Kate Hannigan, John Hendrix, and Heidi Schulz. Rotem loves picturebooks with clever characters and inspired/ing art, and connects with middle grade novels that have transporting writing with creative use of language, and characters with inherent motivation and earned agency. She cares about every facet of bookmaking: from type to case cover art, and everything in between. Rotem has a master’s degree from the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature at Simmons College, and lives in Brooklyn, NY. Find her on twitter: @Spanish_Broom or visit rotem.nyc
