The Art and Craft of Picture Book Writing
A hands-on introduction to writing for readers aged 0-7. We will read (mentor texts, including some early drafts of published books), learn the nuts and bolts of picture book making (create dummies, study pagination), workshop students' manuscripts, and do generative exercises. All students will be required to bring one manuscript to workshop in the fourth week, the only session in which they'll get feedback. No work required before class starts.
