From Logline to Draft: Writing Children’s Picture Books–TPS Workshop
Presented by Dr. Jen Malia
April 17, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Do you have an idea for a children’s picture book but don’t know where to start? Or do you feel stuck on your current picture book project? This is a hands-on workshop that will take you from writing a logline to using notecards for the beats of your story to drafting a scene for your picture book. You’ll leave this workshop with a solid plan to complete your story.
