Michelle Worthington, Book Fairy

Join award winning picture book author Michelle Worthington as she takes aspiring picture book authors throught the basics of writing stories for children. She will discuss the different formats of children’s books, how to work with illustrators, creating stories that modern children will enjoy by finding the right topic, language and pace, as well as helping writers to find their own unique voice.

This workshop is for emerging artists who have an idea for a picture book, but not yet written it, or have written a manuscript and require validation that is has what it takes to get published. No prior knowledge of the publishing industry is required.
Michelle will be joined by members of the Share Your Story Dream Team who will share their own experiences of getting their first book published as well as to help with the hands on aspect of the workshop where participants will have the chance to assess not only their book idea, but also determine the purpose behind wanting to share their story.

Proceeds from the workshop will go towards sponsoring Dalit girls in India to attend literacy programs to learn how to read and write.
