CONGRATS, MARILETA ROBINSON, ON YOUR RETIREMENT & 21 YEARS AT HIGHLIGHTS!

Herman Agency client Marileta Robinson recently retired as Senior Editor of Highlights for Children and Highlights High Five. She not only edited and wrote articles for these two magazines but since 1994 Marileta wrote the beloved “The Timbertoes” for Highlights and since 2007 “The Adventures of Spot” for High Five. For the last 18 years, Marileta has been an integral part of the Highlights Foundations Writers Workshop faculty and has taught courses at many other workshops for children's writers. Plus, Marileta edited two picture books for Boyds Mills Press, The Rusty, Trusty Tractor and Big Moon Tortilla, both written by Joy Cowley, and she has published two books of her own, Mr. Goat's Bad Good Idea & The Big Bicycle Race.

And, Marileta’s best is yet to come! Lucky for all of us, Marileta Robinson is writing books for children. Amazing books for children. So stay tuned!

  8. I was fortunate to work with Marileta on a story I wrote, which Highlights published last year. She impressed me as gracious and smart. I look forward to reading her books.

    So while it's sad to see her leave Highlights, it's wonderful for children's book lovers that she's going.
