Shout Out: Writing Picture Books Workshop

The New South Wales Writers' Centre is running a course called From Seed to Story: Writing Picture Books on Saturday, 7 December 2013.

Join award-winning writer Lisa Shanahan in this one-day course for beginning writers, as she shares the journey of creating a picture book from the first seed to final story.

Learn the three essential elements of excellent picture book writing and discover, through practical exercises, fresh ways of harvesting original ideas from the everyday and the importance of playful, poetic line-by-line writing.

An overview of the children’s book publishing industry will be given; including issues regarding submission, layout of manuscripts, and finding publishers and agents.
