I will be running a one-day writing workshop, The Craft of Creating Picture Books: Where Text and Image Meet, on Feb. 3rd at the Writing Salon in Berkeley:


Picture books provide one of the most exciting and innovative spaces for play in the book world today. Genres collide, stories become graphic novels, and nonfiction dances from the page in lyrical twists and twirls. This concise form, with a close relationship to poetry, needs to carry a strong emotional core, giving satisfaction with minimal words. Picture books can be aimed at young children, even toddlers and infants, but reach older readers as well, especially through nonfiction. While 4-8 is the typical age group associated with this genre, we will look at some examples that target older readers. Read more and sign up at the Writing Salon website
