Welcome!

I’m Cheryl Klein, Executive Editor at Arthur A. Levine Books (an imprint of Scholastic), and this is a small repository of information about writing, publishing, the books I’ve edited, and my editorial tastes. Please poke around and make yourself at home.

SecondSightFinalCover.jpgMost recently on the site: Some Observations on Electric Eels, a talk on outsider stories, reader-character connections, and icthyology.

I also recently updated my Plot Checklist.

Upcoming Appearances: I will be presenting at the Writers Digest conference in April, and then I have one conference appearance scheduled this fall. (I’m open to invitations for next year as well.) Please check back here or contact me at the e-mail address below for information on other appearances.

The messages will be fairly infrequent, and your information will not be shared with anyone else.
