About Abigail

Abigail Frank is lucky to work with brilliant children’s book writers and illustrators at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. She loves picture books, middle grade, and YA equally, but for very different reasons. For picture books, she gravitates towards the quirky and unexpected. For middle grade, she is most excited about hilarious chapter books and older stories that tackle profound questions, new independence and identities, and/or notions of manhood and masculinity. She’ll take a swoon-worthy YA romance any day, or a story with a fresh premise.

In all genres, she appreciates thoughtful and clever writing that never underestimates the subject or the reader. She’s always eager for a story that is contemplative, poetic, slightly magical, or set in the not-so-distant future. She cares about voice, above all, and about working with diverse and inclusive books.

Abigail graduated with a degree in English Literature from Swarthmore College and worked in healthcare before pursuing her passion for children’s books. Find her mostly retweeting @abigailcrfrank.

Webinar will be available for a week after it is presented for those who did not attend but paid for it. There are no refunds for webinars.
