Seminar Description

Eager to revise your current picture book manuscript to ready it for submission? This instructor-led mini-workshopping seminar will let writers share their manuscripts with each other, enabling participants to hone their craft and finalize their work with the help of fellow writers. Students will be encouraged to provide constructive ongoing feedback for each other, focusing on key storytelling elements specific to the picture book format. Ultimately, the seminar will allow writers to return to their stories with new insights and fresh perspectives. Please note: This workshop is only for those who have previously taken a picture book writing course and have a completed manuscript ready for revision.

Four sessions. E – $195, L – $214.5

Esther Hershenhorn authors picture books and middle grade fiction, coaches children’s book writers, and recently served on the Board of Advisors of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
