Opportunity: Picture Books

The Craft and Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books

The Who: The course is co-taught by two editors, one of whom is also a former children’s literary agent with extensive knowledge and connections in the field  who is also an editor and art director, and the other is an acquiring major house editor along with fantastic contributions from editors, agents, and rock star authors. Plus we have targeted video and written interviews with over 25 industry experts.

The What: It’s a 5 week online interactive e-Course/Training program that teaches students just about everything that they need to know about writing and selling and marketing children’s picture books that also comes with an additional 6months of access. It uses a scaffolding technique of teaching for very beginners to award winning authors

The When: The next course starts in April 16th 2018 with the first live training happening the first night and runs for 5 glorious interactive weeks. The course is designed to be extremely time flexible so you can access the materials and interact as much or as little as you like. No one is ever in trouble but the more you can put in the more you’ll get out of it. The additional 6 months of additional access makes it very doable no matter how busy you are and the private Facebook group continues on indefinitely.

The Where: The comfort of your own home, a café, the library, anywhere that you can get internet access. You don’t need to travel anywhere for this course plus you can still take it even if you are traveling.

The How: 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., hooks, characters or nonfiction topic, plot or structure 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.

The Why: This is the most important one. If you want to write and publish a children’s picture books, this is the best value course that you can find to successfully write and get published. It’s the original five week interactive picture book writing course with industry experts and a multi-award-winning best-selling faculty. It’s also the only course with a phenomenal proven track-record of published, contracted, and now agented former students. No other course gives this level of focused attention to each student who participates and it’s the only one with a money back guarantee for folks who do the work and still don’t think that they learned a tremendous amount after a year.
The course is also the only one that provides fantastic submission opportunities and empowers students to do all sorts of extraordinary things. The course has been described as the equivalent of 20 conferences and better than graduate level university programs from students with kid lit masters degrees. Plus it’s fun and comes with a ton of bonuses including bonus courses in building an author or illustrator platform and building your own website, the new fully illustrated Little Big Book of Children’s Book Writing Techniques and an exciting BRAND NEW BONUS!
