ONLINE WORKSHOP: What's the Big Idea? Finding the Spark in your Picture Book

Portrait of Jessica Walton
21 November 2020 - 10:00 to 4:00 PM
Jessica Walton
Join children’s author Jessica Walton for a day of imagination and perspiration; we’ll look at the existing world of picture books for children, exploring what has worked for successful books on the market today. Next, we’ll jump straight into writing them ourselves! Start from the very beginning or develop an existing concept or manuscript. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, there’s nothing like being surrounded by other picture book writers to get the creative juices flowing! Prepare to be inspired, energised and supported as we take the leap from idea to page together.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

Before the workshop

Participants are recommended to bring a picture books of their choice to discuss and share.
