Craft and Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books – Online Course

Writer’s and Illustrators, are you ready to take your picture book and illustrating to the next Level? Then you might be interested in this course, the Craft and Business of Illustrating Children’s Books. It is a 5 week highly interactive e-Course/Talent Search with opportunities to submit to art directors, editors, and agents that can open publishing doors for you. Register by June 26th and use PBLove – your special discount code to receive $70.00 off.

Mira also scholarship opportunities – you must apply by June 23rd. Here is the link:

Monday through Friday, fresh lessons and exercises from our awesome faculty are released on our password protected website that also includes tons of resources including lists of publishers and agents, worksheets, done-for you templates, and much more. We interact via our private Facebook group where questions are answered and small critique groups are set up for those who want them. We have a special webinar page for each week where students post responses to each webinars topic – e.g., thumbnails, quirky or memorable characters etc. Times are scheduled to accommodate folks in different countries as much as possible and we also record the webinars for those who can’t make it live.

I took the Middle Grade Writing Course earlier this year and it was chuck full of information. Everyday there were new exercises and things to do. I couldn’t do everything, but Mira gives you access to all the files for six months – so you can work at your own pace. I certainly found the course made me focus on starting my new book and finishing the first draft.

Over 140 Children’s Book Academy students have signed contracts for published books.

Talk tomorrow,
