Making Picture Book Magic is a 4 week course developed by children's author, Susanna Hill. An award winning author of picture books such as NO SWORD FIGHTING IN THE HOUSE, NOT YET, ROSE, and CAN'T SLEEP WITHOUT SHEEP, Susanna developed a course that guides wannabe picture book writers, like me, from the beginning idea to the completed draft.
The advantage of this course besides Susanna's guidance is that it allowed me to proceed at my own pace. Since the loss of my daughter, I have been tasked with homeschooling my grand daughter just as her mother has done for the last 4 years. It is a task I dearly appreciate, and one that has come to mean more than I could have ever realized before. However with that said, I now find the time I can commit to my writing greatly reduced. With Making Picture Book Magic, I was able to work at my own speed and time.
The best part of just completing the course--or at least I will on Monday--is that I now have not one, but two picture books completely outlined and ready for revision. An added bonus of taking this course is that I am encouraged, enthused, and extremely excited to now have the knowledge to complete my next goal--Picture Book #2.
If you have ever wondered whether or not you could write a picture book, check out Susanna's course. With her, I learned to Make Picture Book Magic, and you can too.
