Tell Your Story: Picture Books
There’s just one thing we can tell you about writing a picture book: there is no one “right way” to do it.
You have a story to tell, and a unique voice with which to tell it.
Maybe you’ve had an idea for a while and want to get started. Maybe you’re looking for a place to find community and hone your craft.
No matter where you are on your journey, we’re glad you’re here. Your story and your picture book can inspire children, and we’d love to help.
A Crash Course in Children's Book Publishing
This course covers all aspects of children’s book publishing, from genres and types of books to working with a publisher (and everything in between). Material will be covered via live Zoom sessions and pre-recorded content.
You’ll also have access to weekly live office hours with faculty, and a 1:1 consultation after the course.
