Announcing a Picture Book Webinar

As you probably know, I teach webinars for Writer’s Digest. I did two general session ones and now I’m zeroing in specifically on picture books! I’ll talk for an hour and a half about the craft of picture books, answer questions, and include a critique of your full picture book manuscript (up to 1,000 words) in the price of admission.

The webinar is Thursday, July 28th at 1 p.m. Eastern. Even if you can’t make that time, it will be recorded and you can listen to it after the fact. You will still get a critique from me and the valuable information all about picture books that I plan on divulging during the presentation.

Register for it by clicking here and tell all your PB friends! For those of you who are writing for older readers, I’ll be doing a special YA webinar in September, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

If you want a bundle of great information on writing for kids and teens — including access to one of my previous webinars, the CHILDREN’S WRITERS AND ILLUSTRATORS MARKET book, issues of Writer’s Digest, and craft books — check out the Writer’s Digest July Kit of the Month, available only while supplies last!

    Hey there, Mary! I got your email about the PB. I have a friend with a new minted MFA in childrens illustration (Academy of Art in beautiful SF, CA.) Would this seminar be one from which she could benefit?

    Shoot me an email.

    Very nice of you to be doing this for us, thank you Miss Kole. I am very much looking forward to hearing you speak.

    How great of you to also be willing to give feedback on our ms as well! If I am the author and illustrator do I send the whole package that I put together in publisher, or would you prefer just the ms and a few jpg images?

    Thanks so much.

    Hi Mary, This webinar sounds great!!! I’ve already passed it on to my critique groups, and a number of us will be attending.
    Actually, I’m thinking of purchasing the Kit of the Month. (What a deal!)
    I wanted to check first…I saw that some of your webinars are in the bundle, but WD doesn’t say which ones.
    Is the Picture Book Craft Intensive, on the 28th, definitely included?
    Thanks for your help…I’ll “see” you then!

    Wonderful webinar yesterday, Mary! I’m wowed by the amount of great content you shared. Just about everything you mentioned, I can apply immediately to current works. And the rest has me popping with new ideas! Informative and timely. Thanks! 🙂

    Is it still possible to sign up for your Webinar after the fact? I would love to have you critique my manuscript.
    Also, I’m the author/illustrator of a picture book that just came out for worldwide distribution. Although my publisher’s marketing department assists me, I could use marketing guidance. Any plans for webinars on marketing? Thanks!
