All Levels | If you are a children’s book writer with one or more manuscripts in your back pocket, this hands-on workshop will hone your skills and give you constructive feedback to propel your writing forward. Each week, writers will turn in a new picture book text or revision for group critique. Together, we will focus on identifying strengths and weaknesses in writing and developing revision skills. We will also do some in-class writing exercises and share prompts for developing new stories.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
