Another Picture Book Writing Workshop, Saturday, April 7


Greetings, writers!

Any of you picture book writers out there still feeling isolated? I’m offering another one-day picture book manuscript workshop on Saturday, April 7.

We’ll talk about the fascinating/fiendish (take your pick) specific challenges of writing these fabulous little books, including the essential elements of picture book writing: characters, story arc, language, beginnings and endings, voice and tension.

If you wish, you can bring in copies of a manuscript of your own (no more than 400 words) and we’ll read it aloud and discuss it. Or, just come and absorb whatever’s useful to you and your current or future work. Workshop is limited to a maximum of eleven.

Date: Saturday, April 7, 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Place: my house in Uptown Minneapolis.
Cost: $50 (payable by check or Paypal), including hand-outs and some kind of tasty homemade treat. Please email me at if you have questions or would like to sign up, and please feel free to forward this notice to any interested friends.
