Writing Picture Books

Loading Events

Learn how to write a picture book from a successful author of more than two dozen award-winning books for children. Each session will begin with a short discussion of an aspect of writing for children, including story openings and arcs, characterization, plot/pacing, rhythm/sound, and marketing. Suggested readings, prompts, and feedback will inspire and guide writers in the class. By the end of the workshop, participants should have written and/or revised part or all of a picture book and have a better sense of how to create one in the future. If you want feedback, feel free to bring work to the first class (typed and double-spaced and with 16 copies). Note: No meeting on April 11.
