This course is for anyone interested in learning about picture books and their unique aspects. We’ll review structure, language usage, and character development, as well as de-construct current best-selling and popular picture books to understand what makes them work. Then you’ll apply what you’ve learned to books and manuscripts provided by the instructor so you can begin to approach your own manuscripts with a new eye. Bring a favorite picture book (or one you can’t believe got published) to share! This class is a prerequisite for the 8-Week: Writing the Children’s Picture Book workshop.

In this hands-on workshop with children’s book author Denise Vega, you do not need to have a story already written. We¹ll use the first two weeks to develop and complete a story through brainstorming and writing prompts. In the remaining six weeks, we’ll explore various aspects of writing the picture book through workshopping and discussing the stories written in the first two weeks (or a different story if you have one‹your choice). During the workshop sessions, we¹ll look at a variety of picture book aspects.

Prerequisite: Intro to the Children’s Picture Book, previous children’s book workshop, or permission from the instructor.
