Writing for Illustrators: An Author/Illustrator Intensive 2019

September 19 - 22, 2019

Overview

Grow as a writer while honoring your illustration background.

A picture book plays between both worlds, and for most stories, it’s an interplay of words and pictures. For many author/illustrators, illustration is comfort and writing is “un.” Just as the illustration took study and practice, so does the writing. Join celebrated author/illustrators Elizabeth Rose Stanton, Lori Nichols, and Jessixa Bagley to grow as a writer while honoring your illustration background.
