Nov. 2016 Review Follow-up

Hi CBIG 2016/2017 Members:

We sent a brief questionnaire to the 11 reviewers at the Nov 20, 2016
CBIG Portfolio Review. To date, we have received 6 responses. Below are
their replies as to whether they welcomed submissions etc. We will let
you know when we have more responses.

Note: For the reviewers that are only accepting submissions from people
they reviewed you will be contacted separately IF you were on their
list.

1. David DeWitt – Designer, Little Bee Books, A Division of Bonnier
Publishing
http://littlebeebooks.com 

David sent us the following notes for the group:
Most perceived Little Bee as a board and picture book publisher, and
understandably so: it’s all we’ve published so far, and it’s what is
visible on our website and catalogs. However, we’re going to be
expanding into middle grade and YA, and SOON. We’re actively looking for
middle grade titles at the moment. If anyone wants to submit
dummies/ideas to me, please do. Mail to:
