Writing the Picture Book Handouts and Resources– Darrington Library

on November 16, 2017

On Saturday from 11-2 p.m, I am teaching Writing the Picture Book at the Darrington Library in Snohomish County. This is a free workshop for folks in and around the Snohomish County area.

For those of you not able to attend the workshop, and for anyone who needs extra handouts, I’m posting the handout set here.


 Writing the Picture Book Overview

Picture Book Structure Handout

Where the Wild Things Are Exercise

Other Useful Resources

Carla Sonheim’s Mixed Media Drawing Book

Carla Sonheim’s Classes-She runs the Silly Class which I talked about. This is the class where each morning, we receive a short (ten minute or less), fun and silly drawing assignment to do via our e-mail. I participated in her January class and loved it!

Carla Sonheim Interview–I interviewed Carla about mentoring. It was posted on my blog in January.

Writing the Picture Book for Educators--This is the class I teach through Seattle Pacific University for Educators. You’ll need to look under the category of Reading, Writing and Communications. This is a year-long distance learning class that you complete at your own pace. Educators earn five continuing education classes. A great way to work on your picture book and get feedback from me!
