Introductory | This seminar will equip first-time picture book writers with tools to help position them for success. Guided by a literary agent, writers will learn what the modern picture book market looks like, how to make writing decisions with that market in mind, and how to avoid common mistakes. Mentor texts will be examined and the class will provide insight on the process of taking a book from manuscript to publication and provide tips on how to find an agent.
