Plot, Page-Turns, and Pith: All about Picture Book Pacing

The Colorado Springs Connect & Critique, thanks to the support from our RMC SCBWI chapter, is thrilled to announce our next guest speaker: Sylvie Frank, editor at Paula Wiseman Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will be presenting Plot, Page-Turns, and Pith: All About Picture Book Pacing

What does pacing really mean? What does it mean for a picture book to be “snappy”? And how does plot function in picture books, anyway? We’ll dive into two mentor texts, examining elements that create a well-paced book. In one example, we’ll focus on page turns and middles. In the second, we’ll take a close look at finding just the right ending.
