In this 5 session class, you will explore the genre of picture books via classic and contemporary examples, with a focus on current publishing preferences and practices. 

Your look at this unique literary form will cover topics such as narrative structure, character development, word choice, the relationship between words and images, developing a story, thumbnails and book dummies, steps to finding an agent and publication, joining critique groups and professional organizations. A portion of each class, except the first, will be devoted to sharing and critiquing student projects.
