Everyone already has what it takes to write a picture book: the experience of having been a child. In this workshop, we will read and discuss various types of picture books, including books written in poetry and books written in prose, books that are serious and books that are silly, and books that have been considered controversial. Then, using specific writing exercises, each participant will practice writing picture books of their own.
