Denise Vega, "Grandmother, Have the Angels Come?"
Intro to the Children's Picture Book This course is for anyone interested in learning what a picture book is as well as some of its unique aspects. We’ll review structure, language usage, and character development, as well as de-construct current best-selling and popular picture books to understand what makes them work. Then you’ll apply what you’ve learned to books and manuscripts provided by the instructor so you can begin to approach your own manuscripts with a new eye. Bring a favorite picture book (or one you can’t believe got published) to share! This class is a prerequisite for the 8-week workshop Writing the Children’s Picture Book. To register, go to https://lighthousewriters.org/person/facdetail/person/11386/name/denise_vega/

8 Week Course: Writing Picture Books In this hands-on workshop with children’s book author Denise Vega, you do not need to have a story already written. We’ll use the first two weeks to develop and complete a story through brainstorming and writing prompts. In the remaining six weeks, we’ll explore various aspects of writing the picture book through workshopping and discussing the stories written in the first two weeks (or a different story if you have one—your choice). To register, go to https://lighthousewriters.org/person/facdetail/person/11386/name/denise_vega/

4 Week Course: Writing Children’s Picture Books: Learn the Craft How many times have you read a children’s picture book and thought, “This is so short and simple! How hard could it be to write one?” That’s exactly what award-winning children’s book author Denise Vega thought—until she tried. Now she knows the answer to that naïve question: very hard. Join Vega as she explores the art and craft of writing a good picture book. Learn how to critically evaluate existing picture books and understand why they work. Explore character development, story structure, language and rhythm. Then, under Vega’s guidance, generate ideas for your own story and begin writing and revising as you give and receive light feedback in a supportive classroom setting. Vega leads entertaining discussions about some of her favorite children’s books and authors, and provides handouts and worksheets to guide you in your own process. Prior to class students will receive a short article to read and an easy assignment. Come to the first class with your own favorite children’s picture books … and even those that you can’t believe were published! By the end of class, you’ll have the beginning of or perhaps even a completed manuscript and skills to critically evaluate your own future work.
