Writing the Rainbow: Crafting Picture Books With LGBTQ+ Themes 2019
October 27 - 30, 2019
Picture books bring the world into the hands of young readers. The world we would like them to see (and in which we would like to exist) celebrates all of us as individuals, families, and communities. In many ways we are different, and in many ways we are alike. Our diversity is our beauty and our strength.
Picture books that feature LGBTQ+ topics, heroes, characters, families, and experiences can be a source of comfort to many children as well as a chance to promote respect, acceptance, and the celebration of diversity. Join workshop leaders Lesléa Newman and Rob Sanders, along with special guests, for an immersive experience in creating LGBTQ+ themed fiction and nonfiction picture books for today’s market.
