Write Your Children's Picture Book NOW

$140.00 Non-members

If you have a picture book story idea, but just don't know how to begin, this all-day workshop is for you! You’ll start with an overview of what a picture book is and some of its unique aspects (a short version of Denise’s “Intro to the Picture Book” seminar). Then you’ll dive into studying existing picture books and hands-on exercises, where you'll learn brainstorming techniques, explore ways to get into your character (if you have one), and develop a plot or structure for your story that can become a map for your writing. You’ll also have an opportunity to talk through your ideas and maybe even an opening paragraph or two with other writers in small groups to gain support and new approaches. The goal is to leave with the start of a story and a clear plan to finish that first draft.

Due to concerns over the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Lighthouse is moving all in-person classes to remote participation through Zoom, a simple teleconferencing technology, for the duration the Spring Session. All participants will be emailed guidance for how to use Zoom and will be provided technical support. For detailed instructions on how to use Zoom, see our Participant Zoom Manual here. Please send any questions or concerns to [email protected]
