Start Writing That Picture Book Now
This class involves two 10 am-noon sessions on March 10 and 17. Picture books (PBs) are a distinct writing form with their own unique characteristics. Once you understand PB fundamentals, the next step is to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). PRIOR to the first meeting, participants will be expected to write* a PB manuscript of up to 500 words and email it as a Word document to the instructor. Note: this can simply be a first draft or a more polished version. In our first session, we will briefly cover guidelines for effective critique groups. Then, the instructor will lead a collective, constructive critique of each manuscript. PRIOR to the second meeting, participants will revise their manuscripts, and email them as Word documents to the instructor. In our second session, the instructor will lead another round of constructive critiques. This class is open to all, but graduates of Henry’s Intro to Picture Book Writing class or experienced PB writers will be best prepared to benefit. *Note: This class focuses solely on writing, not illustrating.
