Notes From the Bank Street Writers Lab

December 20, 2018
                                                                                                            Keyword: Bank Street Writers Lab


The Center for Children’s Literature is delighted to share a list of books authored by members of the Bank Street Writers Lab, published in 2018.  The Lab was created in 1937 by Bank Street founder Lucy Sprague Mitchell.  The Lab is a forum for professional children’s book authors seeking peer feedback on their manuscripts before submission for publication.

It has been a very prolific year for the group.  All are very grateful to other Lab members for their input and advice and to Bank Street for continuing to offer this opportunity for professional growth. Below is the list of book titles.
