The Art of Picture Book Writing – Tuscany, Italy

I will be teaching a week-long course called The Art of Picture Book Writing in Tuscany, Italy this June. TUSCANY! ITALY! In a restored monastery in the San Fedele village! I’m still pinching myself. The workshop is for picture book creators wanting to hone their craft, polish their manuscripts, and learn more about the publishing industry. We’re going to talk about the current picture book market, examine successful picture books, and equip you for a wonderful career in children’s literature. The workshop fee includes accommodations, breakfast/dinner for the week, train station pick up/drop off, museum entrance fees, wine-tasting, and other excursions. You can find more information and register at the Il Chiostro website.

Let me know if you have any questions, or feel free to reach out to the coordinators directly at
