In this course, you'll navigate the many paths to picture book publication including traditional publishing, small/indie presses, self publishing, or a hybrid combination of multiple publishing paths. This class is best suited for those new to writing picture books or creatives who need direction with choosing a publication path. Each participant will leave with a teacher-guided pros/cons graphic organizer unique to their own picture book idea/manuscript. By the end of the workshop, picture book writers and illustrators alike can then decide: Which path to picture book publication is right for me?
