Writing the Picture Book Online Class

on January 7, 2020

Join me in an online Writing the Picture Book Class! The four week class runs from February 7-March 5. Assignments can be done on your time schedule and include instructor feedback on the draft of a picture book.

You can see the class agenda here.

Class Summary: Picture Books are the most beloved story form of children’s writing. But how easy is it to write one? In this class, we’ll look at how to create a memorable child character, how to craft a simple plot to be read multiple times, explore pacing, and do a little researching into the current picture book market. The class includes instructor feedback on all assignments, and a draft of an 800-word picture book. Students will be encouraged to spend an afternoon at their local library or elementary school reading picture books. The class is designed for those interested in learning how to write a picture book story and is very beneficial for illustrators wanting to know how to write a picture book.

Writing the Picture Book is an online class which is being offered in partnership with WOW: Women on Writing.
