Dancing with words: dreaming in pictures

GENRE: Writing for children & young adults
Lumb Bank

What comes first in the making of a picture book? Words? An idea? An image? This course is for anyone interested in writing and/or illustrating picture books. How do writers and illustrators work together? What is their relationship? What about the people who do both? What is the role of the editor and designer? How do you approach a publisher or an agent? The course will explore the many elements of picture-book making in order to inspire and shape ideas. It will be playful, fun, experimental and enlightening.
