How to Write a Children’s Book
In this workshop, Sherin Thawer will help you decide how to tell your story. You may be interested in turning an already existing story into a children’s book. Thawer will go over how and if you should attempt this reconstruction. She will also assist you in the drafting process by reading your children’s book draft and suggesting edits.
How to Create Pictures for a Children’s Book
Depending on the age group your children’s book will target, you may or may not choose to include pictures in the book. Sherin Thawer will help you decide if you should take photos with a camera or draw illustrations to act as the visual component. However, not every gifted writer is talented in the visual arts. If you have ideas for visuals, but aren’t sure how to create these, Thawer will assist you in that part of the process as well. She will go over how you can locate and connect with an illustrator to commission work for your children’s book.
How to Publish a Children’s Book
Maybe you already have a draft completed for your children’s book. Maybe you’ve also compiled visuals for the book already as well. But now you’re stuck on the next step: the publishing process. Luckily, Sherin Thawer has already been through this part of the journey! For this writing class, the children’s book author will go over your options, from self-publishing to seeking out a book deal with an established publishing house.
