Finish your picture book and get it ready for submission. Designed for authors and illustrators with a picture book project in progress or in mind, this workshop offers a unique opportunity to develop it, polish it, finish it, and present it to top publishing professionals. You’ll work with established children’s book author/illustrators to get your project ready to present to a senior editor and a senior art director from two major publishing houses. You’ll also meet with a top literary agent interested in discovering new talent. Our faculty includes Bruce Degen (The Magic School Bus); Denise Fleming (Shout! Shout It Out!); Paul O. Zelinsky (Rapunzel); Laurent Linn, art director; Rachel Orr, agent; and Rotem Moscovich, editor.
The workshop will be limited to twenty participants, with acceptance based on the viability of your book project. A maximum of 200 words from your manuscript and/or three illustration samples must accompany your application. If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and finish that dream project, this workshop offers direct input from a faculty dedicated to helping you get your picture book published.
