Now You Can Write Picture Books!

"Have you ever thought about Children’s Picture Books?

"That is, writing for three to eight years olds?

"Most of us have. Seems straightforward, right?"

Write a short - actually very short - story. Get someone to add some nice pictures and BAM, all done.

Well, that’s sort of right but, did you know that when you write and submit picture book manuscripts to publishers, you actually DON’T send in the illustrations as well?

No - the publisher sorts out the visual side of your book.

All you have to do is submit a story they think is WORTH illustrating.

And - as with all children’s writing, the process is not quite as simple as it sounds. There are special tricks and tactics that only the professionals know.

Many newbies mistakenly try to do it the HARD WAY. They want to spend money on artists to illustrate their books - even when that is often very EXPENSIVE and completely UNNECESSARY!

The stories that get published are usually just two or three page submissions that sparkle with ingenuity, humor, and integrity.

Plus, things like subject matter, characterization and point of view are formalized and consistent throughout.

Take this course on the correct procedure for writing and submitting children’s picture books and benefit from the author’s experience and expertise. Robyn Opie Parnell has had dozens of children’s picture books published. You may already have seen her work in libraries and bookstores. She’s been a renowned published children's author for over TWENTY YEARS! Every year she receives delightful letters from the many children all over the world who love her stories and picture books.
