Like children, the picture book may be short, yet filled with variety and discovery. We’ll explore the range of voices and themes possible within 32 pages, begin gathering a toolbox of exercises to help get you from beginning to end, and, most of all, celebrate the process of writing for children too young to read.

Instructor Bio:

George Shannon has been working with children and children’s books for nearly 50 years. His first picture book was accepted for publication in 1979 and he continues to write and submit in a world that often feels light years away from that beginning.  His published works for children include narratives such as Dance Away and A Very Witchy Spelling Bee and concept books such as White is for Blueberry, Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar? and One Family.
