Whether you’ve never written a picture book, or you have a drawer full of manuscripts, this boot camp is for you. Rob Sanders—a former editor, and now a writing teacher and picture book author—will lead the session. Since Rob began his picture book journey six years ago, he has sold four picture books to three major houses, landed an agent, and achieved great riches and fame. Okay, that last part isn’t true, but you'll still enjoy this lively session with Rob. You will learn about creating a concept, picture book plot, character development, beginnings and endings, formatting, and much, much more. Come blastoff to your picture book dreams! Limit: 40 participants
Required Gear: Bring your laptop or favorite supplies for writing and note-taking. Outlets are limited. Bring one (or more) of your picture book manuscripts. If you don’t have a work-in-progress, no worries! We will have lunch at a local restaurant, but you are welcome to bring your lunch, snacks, coffee, etc.
ROB SANDERS does not work as a loading dock worker, a trophy engraver, or an editor. But he used to. Rob is not a cowboy, an alien, or a ballerina. But he writes about them. He is a picture book author, a writing teacher, and a great uncle. A native of Springfield, Missouri, Rob now lives in Brandon, Florida. He is a frequent blogger, critiquer, and writing coach. Rob Sanders—an author whose books will tickle your funny bone and touch your heart.
