Workshop Description:

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.

About the instructor:

Betty Selakovich Casey is the author/illustrator of three children’s books, MAY FINDS HER WAY, THAT IS A HAT, which was a 2015 Best Books of the Year Finalist by Forward Review, and THE PRINCE OF THE PRAIRIE (RoadRunner Press). MAY FINDS HER WAY received a “thumbs up” from the Iditarod Education Director, was a Spur Award Finalist, and a 2016 Zane-Bloser Recommended Read Aloud Book. Betty is a part-time artist when she can find the time, and is editor/associate publisher of TulsaKids Magazine, an award-winning parenting publication.
