The art of crafting words into a picture book story might seem like an easy task, but if writing a novel seems tricky, then, writing the same story using less than 1000 words is tricky, too. In this workshop, Christina will show you the introductory tools to writing your picture book. How to build an idea, how to tell a story in very few words, and how to edit so that every word counts. We will also look at how the words and illustrations work together. How do we decide what part of the story will be told by the words and what part will be told visually?
