Rosenbloom selected for Shanghai Visiting International Publishers program
Scribble publisher Miriam Rosenbloom has been awarded a Shanghai Visiting International Publishers fellowship to attend a specialist program alongside the Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair in November this year.
The Shanghai Visiting International Children’s Publishers program (SHVIP) is a six-day publishers’ program that gives a selective group of children’s book specialists from around the world the opportunity to gain insight into China’s publishing landscape.
Rosenbloom is one of 12 delegates and was chosen from 165 applicants—the largest group of applicants the program has received to date. She is the only Australian representative attending this year’s program, after Brio Books associate publisher Alice Grundy was selected for the fellowship in 2018.
‘I am extremely excited to attend the Fair as a SHVIP fellow, and spend time with an amazing group of international children’s publishers. It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the growing picture book market in China,’ said Rosenbloom.
Scribble has previously sold simplified Chinese-language rights for a number of its picture books, including All the Ways to be Smart and The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade (both Davina Bell & Allison Colpoys), and Daniel Gray-Barnett’s Grandma Z.
