Have you ever wanted to write a children's picture book? Join published author and teacher Cindy Neuschwander and learn about this writing genre. Five two-hour sessions cover all aspects of writing, editing, and publishing your manuscript. Topics covered in this class include an overview of the picture book from first ideas to published books, history of picture books, character, the mind of the child, narrative structures, story skeletons, illustrations, editing, submissions, and publishing contracts. You will read and study a number of picture books throughout the five weeks with the class and consider both fictional and factual story concepts. Whether you are a teacher, parent/grandparent, or someone who has a great kids' story to tell, this class is for you!
