Have you always wanted to write a children’s picture book? Do you have an idea, but don’t know how to turn it into a story? What about illustrations? This four-week workshop will move you from the kernel of an idea to the text for a complete children’s book. We’ll also discuss the importance of illustration, whether you’re an illustrator or not, and de-mystify some of the pesky preconceptions about the number of pages and word count.
