PICTUREBOOKROTH
Everyone has that special picture book that we all remember. The one that instilled in us the love of books and reading. You can write a book that will touch a child's heart! Come along with Irene on a voyage of discovery and learn the secrets of writing every child's favorite book!

In this workshop, Irene will outline the process involved in writing and revising a picture book, from the first draft to the final copy. There are several stages to the writing and revision process of a picture book and each will be discussed in detail.

You will learn
  1. The process to write and revise a picture book
  2. Learn the key parts of a picture book and how they differ from adult genres
  3. How to incorporate writing picture books into your writing plans

After taking this workshop, writers will be able to submit a picture book manuscript to an Editor. In addition, writers will be able to write their picture book manuscripts part of the time while writing their fictional pieces most of the time and still get both of these kinds of manuscripts sent off to publishers.

The class stalled after the first week because of Savvy technology issues. I would not do another class until Savvy takes a serious look at the problems.
Irene is a great tutor, but the system she's working with let her and her students down big time! Very disappointing for all concerned.
