Small Group Instruction Room
with author Nancy Viau. In this interactive writing workshop for adults, Nancy will take the class through the different types of picture books and discuss how each is written, why the author chose a picture book format, and how the book was published (traditionally or self-published, hard copy or digital). Character and plot development and the types of stories editors are seeking will also be discussed.
Participants will draft a picture book "dummy" and also learn about writing a professional query and cover letter to catch an editor's attention.
Please note: this is not an illustration class but distinctions among author, author-illustrator, and an illustrator will be covered.
Registration is required. Avalon property owners may register on June 10. All others may register on June 24.
