Writing Picture Books

 —  —

Writers Federation of Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road, Halifax

This is a hands-on writing workshop for beginning and emerging writers of children’s picture books. You will generate ideas for stories through writing activities, explore writing tools and technique, develop and workshop a new picture book manuscript, and receive feedback on your manuscript from the instructor and workshop participants. While the focus of this workshop is on writing, you will also learn something of the business of publishing picture books. No prerequisites or pre-existing writing are required to participate – come to creatively explore the craft of writing for children.

This workshop will take place at the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia (1113 Marginal Road, Halifax) in three parts over three Thursday evenings:

Thursday, September 12, 6-9 pm

Thursday, September 19, 6-9 pm

Thursday, September 26, 6-9 pm

Visit to register.
