There has been a significant rise in the demand and production of comics in the last few years. According to Publisher’s Marketplace agents sold 205 graphic novels to US publishers from June 2020 to June 2021, 152 in June to June 2019 to 2020, and 93 from June 2018 to June 2019. That is a tremendous increase. This panel looks at how literary agencies have been effected and how they are keeping up. Have they been able to find works and the talent easily? Are they finding all publishers open to this new medium or just some? Are editors easily receptive to projects and experienced enough to judge them?

Poetry has really left its mark on this edition of Bologna Children's Book Fair. Most of the many books submitted for the BolognaRagazzi Award were published in 2020, showing the enormous - and to many surprising – interest in the genre. What does this signify? Perhaps that Bernard Friot's manifesto ‘Universal Rights to Poetry’ has now been widely accepted? That the child is now considered mature enough to appreciate rhymeless poetry, all linguistic experience and content – as in fact the winning book declares? The refined scholar, Morag Styles will help us try to answer these questions.
Poetry will continue to be a key focus also in the future thanks to these magnificent books, which are also beautifully crafted, a feature that is always considered at Bologna Children's Book Fair.
