Have you have previously participated in a course or a one to one mentoring session with Adrienne?  Perhaps you have participated in one of Adrienne’s  Picture Book Camp or Illustration Boot Camps in the Carmelite Centre from 2008 – 2020? Or maybe you attended Adrienne’s course at The Irish Writers Center, or more recently have enrolled in Adrienne’s online Beginners to Intermediate Zoom course? If so, this course is designed to enable you to prepare a picture book proposal ready to submit to an agent or publisher. You are also welcome to apply if you have some previous experience in picture book making from another course or self learning, and a project ready to take to the next level.
  • Do you want to bring what you’ve learned in a previous course to the next level?
  • Do you have a first or second draft that you need critical feedback on?
  • Or perhaps work-in-progress that seems to be lacking progress?
  • Have you created characters that you want to bring to life?
  • Are you striving to get a plot working or wondering about your word count?

If so, you are invited to join Adrienne’s next workshop via Zoom in this follow-on picture book workshop.
The list of what we can cover is exhaustive, but Adrienne’s zest for picture-book-making is not! Within this encouraging and fun atmosphere, you will be taught by group discussion and feedback. You will also be actively writing outside the class so you’ll have work to bring each time it is your turn to share.
Under Adrienne’s expert guidance, different writers and picture book makers will have an opportunity to present their project and receive helpful and constructive comments from your peers. There will also be information on current markets and advice on how to approach publishers.

What will we typically cover?

Over the five evenings, we will explore what are ‘picture book-appropriate’ ideas, active plotting and brainstorming, the optimal use of spreads, and page-turning, picture book design ideas, both with the written word and employing visual devices. You will learn how to plot your picture book idea into 12 double-page spreads, within the ‘rules’ of picture book structure and layout. You will create, edit and re-draft your thumbnail storyboards, learn about handling characters, time span, and visual variety, using repetition, rhyme, and rhythm, approaching agents and publishers.

By the end of this course, what should I have achieved, learned?

    • Be confidently in a better position to redraft your picture book text, or hone your skills in character development, taking into account the feedback you have received.
    • You should be able to assess picture book manuscripts, yours and your classmates with sensitivity and a sharper sense of what is working and what needs more attention.
    • Receive an unbiased and critical appraisal of your picture book by your peers and Adrienne, within a supportive, encouraging, and fun atmosphere.
    • Created a top-notch concept and strong idea of how your story will pan out,
    • Learned about creating characters, leaving room for illustrations, effective wordplay, and techniques to keep the pace going across the twelve double-page spreads.
    • Know when your text or picture book dummy and text is submission-ready. Have a comprehensive checklist of questions to ask yourself before submitting a story to an agent or editor.
    • Have the opportunity to create a support group with your peers in order to continue to receive support after the course.
