ABOUT THIS INTENSIVE:

In this intensive, you'll learn how to craft the best beginning for your picture book. Marcie Colleen will share the four essential elements that every beginning should have, a step-by-step exercise to help you connect with your characters, and examples from picture books with great beginnings. Each of the three lessons has an assignment to help you get the most out of what you're learning, and we've included two handouts for easy reference.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

Lesson 1: A Well-Crafted Picture Book Beginning

  • Does your picture book beginning include Marcie's four essential elements?

Lesson 2: It All Comes Down to Character

  • If you want "heart" in your story, get to know your character.

Lesson 3: A Beginning Is a Promise

  • Your beginning can be a road map. Are you making promises about your story that you keep later on?
