#pblitchat was the inspired idea of Karen Collum (@KarenCollum) and Kathryn Apel (@KatApel), two Australian children’s authors with a passion for picture books. However in 2012 life, writing/work and family commitments necessitated Karen’s withdrawal in April, and Kat’s in December.
The chats are now convened by Chloe Killen (@ChloeKillen) who has been an active part of the #pblitchat community since the initial stages.
Chloe is a sessional academic and PhD candidate investigating creativity in the production of Australian children’s picture books. She brings a wealth of knowledge about the Australian publishing industry to the #pblitchat discussions.
