Workshop: Visualizing Your Children's Story
Whatever the genre, all children's books need to tell a story but how do you know if you have a good story? This workshop helps you move closer to getting published. Topics covered include:
How to define what constitutes a story
The importance of visualizing scenes before writing them and techniques to do so
How to bring forth and thus learn what our own unique " authentic voice sounds like" and why that's the strongest one to use.
What goals revision must accomplish
The importance of outlining
How to make description specific
When to use narrative and when to create a scene with dialogue
The importance of each character having an objective
Uncovering the meaning that goes beyond the story.
Appropriate for both beginning and intermediate writers, this workshop is a mixture of lecture, discussion, readings, critiques and hands-on exercises.
