with John Himmelman, Award-Winning Children’s Book Author & Illustrator
Every Wednesday for six weeks, April 15-May 20
Learn the craft of writing books for children. Children’s book styles are as diverse as their creators, and editors are always looking to bring the next new talent to their publishing houses.
Someone has to write them – why not you? Learn how to write the stories that interest publishers by writing about what interests you! And then… how to find those editors, what to send them, and how to present your work.
Masterclass Topics Featured:
- Writing and Illustration Do’s & Don’ts
- What Publishers Look For
- Finding Publishers,
- Submitting Work,
- Working with Editors
- Working with Art Directors
- Working with Literary Agents
