hello!

JOIN US IN EXPLORING OTHERS' CRAFT AND BUILDING OUR OWN

Diverse group of authors highlight craft elements in their latest books that you can integrate into your own writing or illustrating.

Follow your curiosity. Write and draw what you like. Know there are no set rules but it is important to understand the current book market. Picture book writing is all about how strong the concept is and then how well it is executed.

I choose the stories (fiction or nonfiction) that give me a fluttery feeling. It’s been true of all my projects so far. When an idea takes hold, you can’t shake it off, and you just have to learn more, then that’s the idea to follow.
