Topic: How to Study a Picture Book: Reading with Purpose to Elevate Your Picture Book Writing. Presenter: Jean Reidy, author of Truman.
Details: The first portion of the meeting (12 – 1:15pm) is devoted to Jean’s presentation. Purposeful picture book reading provides both a classical as well as a current foundation in the craft of picture book writing. Join Jean as she takes you through practical, writing-focused strategies for an effective picture book study. Important: Please bring 3 of your favorite picture books from the last 3 years (at least 2 for which the author is not also the illustrator).
The second portion (1:30-2:30pm) is critiques. SCBWI members are welcome to come to either or both portions.
If you are doing critiques, bring six copies of your picture book, five pages of a longer work, a query letter or similar, or your illustrations. Print your work double-spaced if possible, and include word count for picture books. If you can, bring a snack to share!
RSVP: Not essential, but appreciated. If possible, please let Susan Wroble know you are coming: SBMWroble@gmail.com
