Compiling a list of kidlit/YA news sources:

I'm also starting to collect a list of sources of children's/YA industry news.

If you have any suggestions, please do post them in the comments section. Please note that the URL must point to a site or page that focuses on kidlit/YA NEWS, not general publishing industry news and not just general kidlit/YA info with occasional news (e.g. "so-and-so sometimes posts great kidlit news" ). However, if the person tags their news items so that someone could click on that tag and see just news items, I'd be happy to add that URL to the list.

I'm also only interested in public sources that don't charge a fee for access.

Thanks so much for any suggestions! I'll post the list I've compiled every time I do a kidlit news round-up.

Here's what I have so far...

Publisher's Weekly: Children's section

Quill & Quire - Canadian focus

School Library Journal

Who's Moving Where: news & staff changes at children's book publishers, by Harold Underdown

I'd suggest pulling from Publishing Perspective's section on children's book publishing. All the articles here are from Pub Perspectives, but they do a bunch every month - all on interesting topics (and some have an international focus):
