“Larry Rosler is one of those dream editors every author wants to work with—supportive, involved, focused, and always encouraging.”

Editing Services for Children’s Book Writers
Working with writers is what I do and what I love to do.
I offer more than twenty-five years of experience in the world of publishing for young readers, plus a unique perspective as founding editor of Highlights for Children’s Boyds Mills Press.
Over the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of the industry’s leading authors. The books I’ve edited have been recognized with the National Jewish Book Award, Coretta Scott King Honor Award, Theodor Geisel Honor Award, and Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award, among others. For more than twenty years, I served on the faculty of the Highlights Foundation and also served as speaker and workshop leader at SCBWI conferences nationwide.
I know how much a manuscript means to an author. It means
a lot to me, too. I work with writers in a supportive way, with one purpose in mind: to help them come closer to their goals.
