Service Description

Workshop Information: Writing a salable picture book manuscript requires an understanding of the way text works with illustration. It’s a partnership in storytelling, even before the pictures have been created. This is a brain teaser that took me many years to figure out. I’ll give my students a thorough brain-rewiring that will change their understanding of picture books, improve the way they craft their manuscripts, and give them greater hope of publication. We’ll also talk about the market, finding an agent (or not), AI and the future of writing, and many other important aspects of this business. We’ll read picture books and analyze them, write stories, and give each other helpful feedback. But best of all, we’ll make friends, laugh, eat chips and salsa, dance the watusi, or whatever we feel like doing for fun. We guarantee that one PB manuscript will be reviewed, but bring two just in case there's time look over both.
