So You Want to Write a Picture Book

Introductory | This seminar will equip first-time picture book writers with tools to help position them for success. Guided by a literary agent, writers will learn what the modern picture book market looks like, how to make writing decisions with that market in mind, and how to avoid common mistakes. Mentor texts will be examined and the class will provide insight on the process of taking a book from manuscript to publication and provide tips on how to find an agent.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
