Picture Book University: Sign Up Today!

I'm so excited to tell you about my newest postings--Picture Book University. This will be like a mini-picture book workshop. Every Monday, I will post about one aspect of picture book writing so you can hone in on that topic and really learn how to do it well or understand something you may not have noticed before. At the end of each post, I will give you an assignment to do for the week. Ideally, by the time I finish with these posts, it will be like taking a mini-picture book workshop.

To make it more fun (and also to help you complete the assignments), just sign your name on this post, sort of committing yourself to the workshop. If you'd like, I will put your name and a link to your blog on the right side of this website. Also, please post on your blog about this workshop, too. I'd really like to help other writers out there who might want to learn more about the art of picture book writing. If you don't want to miss a post, subscribe to this blog via email to the right. Or follow.

My first blog entry will be about picture book genres. That will be on Monday.

If you like this idea, please don't forget to press the like button below, or announce it on twitter by clicking the little birdie!

Happy Writing!
