About New Talent
New Talent is a page where young artists can share their manuscripts before they are presented to publishers. We are honored to provide a platform for these wonderful, fresh books authored by students from Penn Design. These titles are created during the Children’s Picture Book class Writing with Pictures, with Professor Perky Edgerton. They showcase the creative process of a young artist. Our program invites you to dive into original artwork, fresh ideas, and personal stories.
We are committed to building bridges. With this newly added page (May 2018), we are connecting Penn students from different departments and establishing future collaborations. Making their work visible to a wider audience is an important new goal for our program. Our hope is that some of the manuscripts will be discovered by publishers and one day will make their way to the bookshelves in school libraries.
