Personalized Children's Book Writing Workshop in Paris

Five inspiring days of intimate, individualized sessions. 

About the workshop
All children's books need to tell a story but how do you know if you have a good story? The Write Bank moves you closer to getting published by examining the elements of your story idea or manuscript: plot, structure, character and dialogue.

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 your own unique "authentic voice sounds like"
• The importance of outlining
• How to make description specific and character revealing
• When to use narrative and when to use dialogue
• The importance of each character having an objective
• What goals revision must accomplish
• Uncovering the meaning that goes beyond the story.

Appropriate for both beginning and intermediate writers, The Write Bank Children’s Book workshop is a combination of lecture, discussion, readings, in-depth critiques and hands-on exercises. The focus is deeply personal: on your specific work and your current writing goal.

Why it’s different
The setting: a cozy, Parisian apartment on the Right Bank in a most charming neighborhood with delicious French breakfasts included
The group: supportive and small (4-6)
The technique: practical, proven, personal

5 Day Workshop - $500
• 20 hours of instruction
• one hour post-workshop private consultation

Participants are responsible for their own airfare, transport, accommodation, meals and incidentals.
