Do you have a picture book idea or a working draft? During this five-week course, we workshop drafts of our picture books to get feedback from the instructor and our peers. While we look at the essential elements of picture books—plotting, pacing, and age-appropriate language—we also experiment with different structures—including the classic story, the circular story, the concept story, and the fractured fairy tale—to discover the narrative arc that works best with our story and theme. Immerse yourself in the world of children’s literature while developing and strengthening your own voice and style. This course is recommended for those who completed KidLit: Picture Books Level 1 or for those ready to write/revise full drafts.
