Have you ever wondered how a picture book is created?
Would you like to write and illustrate one of your own?

Then this workshop is for you!

Join Jane Godwin, author of over twenty picture-books and publisher of countless others, as she helps you create your own picture book.

We’ll look at all the steps it takes to make a picture-book, including:
Generating ideas
Making dummies
Creating a finished product

Jane will demonstrate along the way showing her process and examples from her own books.

You don’t have to be a keen illustrator to participate in this course. If you’re only interested in the
writing side, that’s fine too – you will still learn heaps! And it will be fun!
