How do you tell a captivating story in less than 800 words? Do you need to work with an illustrator to create a picture book? How do you create plot and build suspense? Should you write in rhyme or prose? Jacqueline Jules, author of 45 books for young readers, will answers these questions and more. This three-week workshop will cover the basics of a successful children’s book, including point of view, story arc, and character development. 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.
