ABOUT WORKSHOPSDo you know how many pages there are in a picture book? How to make a storyboard? How to submit a piece of work to publishers? All this and much more!
Everyone will benefit from these workshops. This is the only workshop which offers the experience of two enthusiastic and experienced tutors, one for the words and one for the pictures (though both can do either). There are exercises in the craft of writing, drawing and book design. We offer advice on approaching publishers, and also discuss ways of self-publishing. Novelists, short story writers and children's poets are all welcome and benefit from the experience of sharing their work with the other participants and the tutors.
The workshops have been offered since 1997.
Books IllustratedGasworks Park is also the home of Books Illustrated, the famous children's bookshop and gallery.
Virginia specialises in the writing process, structuring a story and the selection of words. She is happy to advise on the writing of books for children of all ages. Jacqui or Jo advise participants on the visual creation of characters and their environments, styles of drawing, painting and book design.
Bring your story ideas, your characters, your anecdotes, the pictures
that inspired you. If you have none of these, bring yourself and
we guarantee you will have a workable story idea, structured to fit picture
book format, by the end of the workshop day - something to work on during
the next month. Come equipped with your work in hand, a sketch book and
pencil, and also paper for writing.
