Exploring Picture Books
Want to write a picture book but don’t know where to start?
You’re not alone.
Lucky for you, I love picture books and have been reviewing them for over 30 years. Join me in this highly-interactive full-day course where we look at the best picture books being published in Australia today and what makes them tick.
We look at how illustrations work with (and sometimes in oppostition to) the story, how to be ruthless in your editing and how to create something original and universal at the same time. Bring your favourite books to discuss, plus your work in progress. You will be able to workshop your ideas in a welcoming and safe environment and leave with an action plan to take your work to the next stage.
For a short time only, at the special ‘COVID-19-ate-my- income’ price of $125
