VIRTUAL MASTERCLASS: Writing and Illustrating Children’s Books

$175 – $195

with John Himmelman, Award-Winning Children’s Book Author and Illustrator

Wednesdays, June 9-30, 6:30-8:30 PM • Presented via ZOOM

$195 (members $175), class limited to 7 students (18+)

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 to their publishing house the next new talent. This Masterclass is for writers who want to pursue publication with mainstream publishers, as opposed to those who wish to self-publish.

Classes take place via ZOOM. You will receive a confirmation of your purchase and login links will be sent closer to the program dates.
