Clearly, Ellie is clueless. But it's okay, we all were/are at first. But luckily, if you do want to become a picture book writer, there is a fantastic class waiting for you!
The Craft and Business of Writing Children's Books is being taught by the amazing Dr. Mira Reisberg through http://www.childrensbookacademy.com/writing-childrens-picture-books.html
And I'm so happy to announce that I have the opportunity to assist her. I am actually a graduate of this amazing course.
You will learn the basics and beyond! The best part of the course for me, was having a critique group and being involved in a community of writers.
As a reading teacher and writer of children's books, I've realized that writing is writing. The writing that we teach kindergartens or fourth graders is the same craft that I learned in my MFA program. There are basics of craft that you must learn as a writer, no matter what age.
Having a background and degree in both reading and writing has been very helpful and eye opening.
As an assistant in this class, I plan to share some of that insight.
So, if you are thinking about taking this class, DO IT!
So who am I?
And here are some of my thoughts about being a writer.
