Get Serious about your Picture Book Writing Career!

I am so happy to be part of the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Workshop in June! If you sign up for my picture book class, here’s what you’ll get:

Picture Book Extravaganza – We’ll spend some time each day reading and analyzing some of the most fabulous picture books out there.

Instruction in topics ranging from writing a great read-aloud, to creating more action in your text, to finding an agent, to working with an editor, to making your manuscript irresistible.

A souvenir binder with art from one of my picture books.

Hand-outs that cover the most important aspects of picture book writing which you can refer to again and again.

A few surprise guests from the picture book world.

A thorough list of websites, agents, publishers that accept non-agented work, and other resources to help you in your publishing quest.

An honest, careful critique of your picture book manuscript and suggestions to make it the best it can possibly be.

Break-out sessions on all kinds of writing topics, by award-winning authors and illustrators.

Access to a reputable agent and editor.

Inspiration, conversation, motivation, and FUN! A HUGE boost to your writing career.

I hope to see you there!
