Brave Rave: 

Writing & Marketing Children's Books

Presentation by Raquel Hunter

Raquel Hunter, author and publisher of the Brave Rave series of children’s books, will speak about the journey of self-publishing surrounding branding, marketing, and merchandising. The writing and especially the marketing of children’s literature is a bit different from books meant for adult readers, although authors of novels and nonfiction for grown-ups will come away with tips and advice they can use, too. Raquel will cover:

    1. Writing and illustrating your story
    2. Branding, marketing, and merchandising
    3. Networking

Join us at THE HEIGHTS on May 9 at 7pm to learn about the art of creating, publishing, and marketing children’s books — and bring home tips you can use to market other genres, too!

Saint Louis native Raquel Hunter is the author of the “Diary of Brave Rave” children’s book series, written to encourage literacy, promote diversity, and empower youth. As a frequent youth literacy workshop speaker relaying a message of grit and compassion, she was recently honored as 2018 University City Returning Artist for her inspirational works.
