Writing picture books requires economy of language. How do you cut to a bare minimum and still tell a captivating story in less than 800 words? Jacqueline Jules, author of forty books for young readers, will share tips on writing stories for children with an eye toward publication. This three-week workshop will cover topics important to a successful children’s book such as point of view, story arc, character development, and marketability. Participants will have the chance to share their own stories for group critique. Writing prompts and tips on how to break into the publishing world will be provided.
