WIK '18

WIK ’18 had a lot to offer. Linda Sue Park discussed the importance of scenes and how they are the building blocks of fiction. Market needs and trends were the subject of Deborah Halverson and Pat Cummings detailed Vistual Storytelling for Author/Illustrators. Other topics included plotting, creating stonger conflict for your characters and setting the scene for best effect.

Topics ranged further into discecting picture books, the role of the independent publisher and how to land an agent.

Send me your comments on how effective these workshops were for you and I’ll be glad to post here.

I’ll also be posting some of my notes that I thought were helpful.

Hope everyone learned a lot and enjoyed the weekend.       © Stephanie Moody 2011
