Picture Book I Class
Date: Saturday, 1 October 2022
Venue: UCLA Extensions via Zoom Classroom

Offered through UCLA Extensions, Picture Book I  Writing X 441.1 (3 credits) is available for students to earn 3 credits or for adult, non-students interested in learning about writing picture books. “Created for the beginning writer, this course explores the various genres within the category of children’s picture books, including nonfiction, writing in rhyme, classics, and concept books for young children. Writing exercises focus on improving fundamental craft skills, such as characterization, story structure, setting, voice, and point-of-view. You are encouraged to expand your creative thinking in order to develop your own unique writing style (your voice), and a peer feedback group provides a nurturing atmosphere for discussion of each writer’s work. The goal is to complete a draft of a picture book manuscript and a market list of potential publishers.”
