PICTURE BOOK WRITING SEMINAR: On day one, we analyze approximately 18 picture books from every angle: the interplay between illustrations and text, the plot structure, the literary qualities, the child’s perspective when hearing the story, and much more. On day two, each participant works on several picture books—text and illustration concepts—and presents them. We discuss, analyze, and brainstorm within the context of what we’ve learned.


You go home with a new perspective of how to pair creativity and inspiration with professional writing techniques to create a picture book as fascinating as the ones you read and love.


Duration: One weekend, three-and-a-half hours per day


Write to workshop (at) keithbooks (plus the usual dot com) with the subject line “Picture Books” for more information.
