How to write a Picture Book.
A no fuss course on the actual process behind writing for the Picture Book market.
Have you ever dreamt of writing a picture book for your kids, grandkids or even your students, but didn't know where to start or where to go for help?
I was once in exactly the same place. I had an idea and wanted to write a picture book for my daughter but struggled to find the resources or information needed to bring this dream to reality. After many months of trial and error, doing courses and attending conferences and seminars I finally published my debut picture book.
Since then I have written and or illustrated more than 20 picture books.
That is why I created this course, I wanted to help emerging writers craft a picture book story in the shortest possible time. To this end I have removed all the technical, jargon or padding information and have only included what I think is the essential information to take you from nothing to a finished manuscript in the shortest possible time.
