Picture Book from Concept to Publication by Alice Walsh

Alice Walsh, a long-time member of East Hants Writers, is holding a workshop called The Picture Book from Concept to Publication at Open Book Cafe, Nimbus Publishing.

  • Dispelling myths about children’s books and the picture book in particular
  • Types and genres of picture books
  • Opening lines–begin with a bang.
  • Word count—keeping the prose sparse while making it hum
  • Why illustrations are more than just décor
  • Creating unforgettable characters
  • Finding a market for your picture book

Date: Monday September 30, 2019

Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
