4 Tuesdays, July 16—August 6
Picture books are fun, lively, and engaging…but they aren’t as easy to write as they seem! In this course, you’ll learn the ins and outs of picture book writing, from generating fresh ideas to polishing your manuscript. You’ll discover how to pace your story, use page turns for suspense and humor, and find your snappy, picture-book-style voice. Students will leave with at least one polished manuscript and a notebook full of potential story ideas.
Joy Keller is the author of fun and fantastic picture books, including Monster Trucks, Miss Turie’s Magic Creatures, and the upcoming Fungus Is Among Us! When she’s not writing, she’s teaching fourth graders how to write. She lives in Fairport, New York with her husband, two kids, three cats, and two hermit crabs.
