A friend of mine is giving a workshop at our local independent publisher - Bona Fide Books on writing and illustrating children's books. Here's the info for those of you in CA and NV.
Children’s writers, YA writers, and illustrators: this two-part session is for you. Writer and illustrator Kristen Schwartz will be at HQ Thursday, Mar. 22 from 7-9 pm for a Q&A and a breakdown of her top tips and tricks for creating and submitting marketable work for younger audiences. This session is free and open to the public, to be followed by a $75 intensive, personalized class Saturday Mar. 24 from 10 am-2:30 pm, including a half-hour lunch break. Part two will include familiarizing writers and illustrators with industry tools and the query process, and working directly with attendees on how to publish their personal projects. Space is limited; call now to reserve your spot in the Saturday session. 530-573-1513.http://www.bonafidebooks.com/events/
