You'll find: Instruction on generating ideas, creating characters, point of view, beginnings and endings, plotting, word count, rhyme, and more Unique methods for using poetic techniques to enrich your writing and make your manuscript sing Hands-on revision exercises (get out your scissors, tape, and highlighters) to help you identify problems and improve your picture book manuscripts Tips on researching the picture book market and approaching publishers Whether you're just starting out as a picture book writer or have tried unsuccessfully to get your work published, Writing Picture Books is just what you need to craft picture books that will appeal to young readers and parents, agents, and editors.
