Children's author Rick Walton will present a picture book workshop from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. (with a break for lunch) on Saturday, May 30 in Brigham City at the Brigham Museum Gallery, 24 North 300 West.
"It's been a long time since I've done anything that far north. So if that's convenient for you, this is your chance," said Rick.
A condensed version of Rick's semester long class at BYU, the workshop will packed with information. From discussing what makes a good and a bad picture book to idea development, writing tips, selling your manuscript, and marketing, Rick's workshops deliver a punch that will jump start your creative juices, and help get your manuscript in top form. The day will also include a critique session and approximately $40 of free signed picture books.
Rick notes that for those who will be attending Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers at BYU in a few weeks this is a good opportunity to fine-tune your manuscript, and learn more about the industry.
The author of over 75 children's books, including Bullfrog Pops and Pig, Pigger, Piggest, Rick teaches classes on picture book writing and the children's book business at BYU.
Cost of the workshop is $80. Other fee options: no manuscript critique (though you should sit in and participate in the critiques - a great way to learn)--$60. Come and learn, get all the stuff, but Rick critiques your manuscript before or after--$70. If you really want to come, and can't afford to, e-mail Rick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
