Coral Huckstep - Editor Assessments

Coral is a children's book editor at Affirm Press and has the pleasure of reading and editing wonderful manuscripts for young people. Coral loves all stages of editing, from assessing the bigger picture to addressing the finer details, and everything in between. Above all, she loves the collaboration and creativity involved in bringing a manuscript through to publication and makes sure authors are at the centre of this exciting process.


At this conference, Coral is interested in discussing:

  • middle-grade and YA novels
  • narrative non-fiction and general non-fiction for kids and teens
  • graphic novels for all ages (under 18!), with a keen interest in meeting author-illustrators


Coral will not be looking at picture books or chapter books/junior fiction (ages 5-9) at this time.
