When, Where

If you long to write picture books and hold a publishing contract in your hands, your writing will not only need to inspire and spark the imaginations of the young, it will also have to convince to publishers and agents alike who are competing for success in a global book market.

Claire will guide you through the process of writing an appropriate character study, show you how to craft a well structured picture book narrative that is both dynamic and economic, and give tips on how to give your character a unique voice with both child and publisher appeal. Hear Claire's own publishing journey along with up-to-the-minute information on what publishers are looking for in the current competitive market.

Please note, this is a specialised writing workshop, illustration techniques will not be covered.
