Picture Books II: Revision

Loading Events

Learn to deeply revise and polish your picture book manuscript before submitting to an agent or publisher. A widely published author and an acclaimed illustrator will lead discussions in pacing, page turns, storyboarding, and visually dramatic storytelling. During this hands-on workshop, writers will be editing their own manuscripts and enhancing their skills as picture book creators. Bring your questions and two double-spaced copies of a picture-book manuscript that you’ve carefully revised. Workshop may most benefit those who have taken Mary Quattlebaum’s “Writing Picture Books” but all writers ready for revision are welcome.
