Nancy Woodbridge on Writing as a Form of Self-Expression

Nancy has already published her works under traditional publishers in the past, namely, her children’s books The Tuesday Elephant and The Dancing Monkey, which were both well received. As children’s books are Nancy’s chosen niche, she later enrolled at the Institute for Children’s Literature where she learned more valuable things and began working on a few more manuscripts.

Not long after, Nancy began sending her manuscripts to traditional publishers, but after several rejection slips, she finally decided to go the self-publishing route.
