Learn to write or illustrate children’s picture books! A class for newbie or seasoned writers, illustrators, or writer-illustrators.
Join artist-author Carolyn Fisher for two classes on writing and illustrating children’s books. Whether you’re a writer or an illustrator, a newbie or a professional, we’ll dig into the business of books in this info-packed course. Bring your own story for coaching, or create a project in class. Ask questions about writing stories, making storyboards, submissions, portfolios and more. You’ll end up with a draft of your very own children’s project, and learn how professionals pitch their books to publishers or agents.
Registration for this workshop is currently full. If you would like to be put on a waiting list in the event there is a cancellation and a spot opens up, please email us at [email protected].
The two classes will happen live over Google Classroom:
