For years I’ve been dreaming up a picture book class, and now it’s a reality! Soooo excited about The Decatur Writers’ Studio.
“Picture books are perhaps the most inventive popular literary form we have, and that’s exciting! You can do ANYTHING in a picture book, if you do it well enough. But that makes it hard to know where to begin, and how to proceed. Picture books aren’t just about telling a story or teaching a lesson. They’re about capturing a voice or character in a few short words, collaborating with visual space, considering the way children truly think, and sculpting words and sounds to leave a deep and lasting impression. Picture books are poetry, even when they don’t feel like it.”
