Workshops for Children’s Authors & Illustrators
For thirty years, the Highlights Foundation has been fulfilling its mission of improving the quality of children’s literature by helping authors and illustrators hone their craft.
We’d like to invite you to join us for a workshop or retreat at our conference center in the beautiful Pocono Mountains.This property is the former home of the Founders of Highlights for Children, and is located near the Highlights office in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Each year, we offer more than three dozen workshops covering a wide range of topics. The workshops are led by children’s publishing professionals: editors, writers, art directors, publishers, agents, academics and others who are there to help you realize your creative goals.
One of the reasons that our workshops are so invigorating is because of the welcoming community you’ll find – there’s so much to learn from our faculty and your fellow authors and illustrators! We’d like to help you stay connected with that community, help you to keep learning your craft, after you return home. We’ve gathered some resources to offer you ongoing inspiration.
