TOPIC: Writing Children’s Picture Books: Creating Words & Images that Flow
INSTRUCTOR: Heather Devlin Knopf
This picture book workshop will address the rhythm and flow of a great picture book in relation to words and images. We’ll analyze the beginning, middle, and end of a picture book; pagination for impact; and the importance of editing one’s work. Tip sheets and exercises will provide learning support with a Q&A session to follow. If you are working on a picture book, or have always wanted to create one, join us!
