Some of Elaine's workshops for first part of the year (to June) are listed. Others will be added, along with more guest presenters.
But we already have one exciting guest presenter lined up. We are pleased to announce that award winning author Aleesah Darlison is going to present a new picture book workshop in July. The Inside Word on Picture Books will leave you buzzing with information and enthusiasm.
Being good at High School English doesn't mean you can write a book.
Writing a great story of any kind requires much technical skill, but these skills can be learned. Like all professions, to be the best at what you do, you have to work at it. Many people can tell a story, but if it doesn’t excite and intrigue the reader on the first page, they won’t read on.
These skills are needed whatever you are writing: short story, picture book, chapter books for children, poems, memoirs, novels, etc. Every professional had to put in the hard yards to learn their vocation. A writer is no different.
It is time to invest in your dream and take the courses you need. The cost is very reasonable.
