Writing a Children’s Book 101

Learn the craft of writing books for children. Editors are looking to bring to their publishing house the next new talent. Write the stories that interest them by writing about what interests YOU. Learn how to find those editors, what to send them, and how to present your work. It’s a misconception that you need to be an artist to write children’s books – if you are not, the publisher hires one for your story. Topics include: Formats, brainstorming, writing and illustration do’s & don’ts, what publishers look for, finding publishers, submitting work, contracts, working with editors, agents, and more. Min. of 7 needed. The program will meet via zoom, March 3 – 24 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. The fee is $165. Non-residents please add $10.
