Course Description

ONLINE: In the first five sessions of Creating Your Children's Book, we will focus on structuring a story. Students will learn about and discuss important elements that are foundational to the creation of a children’s book: inventing original characters, determining those characters’ motivations or conflicts and, finally, determining the resolutions to the story. Students will be given assignments related to these elements, work with them between classes to build their individual stories and share their results with fellow participants. The second set of five classes will focus on stylistic elements that make children's stories sing: descriptions using the senses, vivid verbs, images and dialogue. During these classes, students will view multiple examples of these elements and then examine and strengthen their work during class by using them. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.
