Workshops are held from 11.00am – 5.00pm on Saturdays at Scholastic Books, London, and are inclusive of lunch and refreshments. All of them are a mixture of teaching and writing, working alone and in small groups and workshopping draft manuscripts. Specific break-out sessions are offered for writers who work in verse.
- Bring one of your manuscripts to read and receive group feedback;
- Analyse two bestselling picture books, with particular attention to tone, voice, structure and emotional impact on both the adult and the child reader;
- Listen to the experiences and insights of a guest author/illustrator;
- Brainstorm ideas and draft copy for at least one new manuscript.
This workshop is part of our Picture Book Plan: September 2017 – May 2018.
