Françoise Bui is executive editor at Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books. She acquires manuscripts for middle-grade and young adult readers and greatly appreciates stand-alone novels.
She will be giving two breakout workshops on the Saturday of the upcoming 14th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City, February 1st-3rd, 2013, WHAT HOOKS ME.
In this interview with Françoise, we discussed first lines, voice, comparing your manuscript to famous movies (and whether or not that's helpful) and she even shared her karaoke song of choice!
While the Friday Intensives are sold out, there are a limited number
of spaces still available for the Saturday and Sunday of the 2013 SCBWI
Winter Conference. You can find out
