Getting Started with Picture Books
A self-paced, on-demand course with Aleesah Darlison
If you're interested in writing picture books for the first time, or if you've started a few drafts and are looking for some inspiration and guidance, this course is for you!
Many people think that writing picture books is easy because there are so few words in them, but they couldn’t be more wrong! There are many aspects of writing for this market segment that people aren’t aware of or simply overlook. It’s perhaps the most misunderstood writing genre of all.
It takes great practice, care and skill to create a picture book story that ‘sings’, that transcends, that touches people’s hearts – and that stays within an incredibly strict word count.
