Picture Book II is a workshop-style class used to discuss and polish your work-in-progress.
One evening per week (Wednesdays) from October 4 – December 13, 2023. 5 pm – 8 pm (PT) live via Zoom
“This workshop takes you beyond the picture book basics and teaches you to master the specific craft techniques used in creating successful picture books, including strong beginnings and endings, the power of the page turn, audience participation, engaging language, humor, and musicality. Short writing exercises help you develop a deeper understanding of each of these techniques and their purposes and prepare you to undertake your main project for the course: a picture book manuscript. You engage in an ongoing feedback process overseen by the instructor, which provides a “safe zone” for discussion of student work and helps you hone your own critique skills. The course goal is to complete a picture book manuscript.”
