Move over Commando Steve, join author/illustrator Giuseppe Poli for an exclusive Picture Book Boot Camp.

Aspiring authors and illustrators will need to come with 2-3 ideas/stories and a strong idea of what sort of book they want to make (eg: some already published books that are ‘north stars’ for them and their story idea). Our Commando G wants to propel you forward in your career.

“I want them to come out stronger, more energised, more resilient and with a more polished product. They will need to know what a picture book is and have tried or are attempting to make one themselves… so they won’t be spending too much time listening to me, most of the time I want them working on their books…. and reworking… and reworking. It’s going to get messy 🙂 and fun and challenging but I really want them to come out with more clarity about themselves. This is about them and how they can create more.”

Materials you need to bring:

– two or three stories or ideas that they really want to make into picture books
– crayons/pencils
– sharpies/nikkos
– some published picture books that you love and can be used as ‘north stars’.

Materials supplied:
– notepad and pens
– coffee/tea and a light morning tea

There will be a break and a Q & A session, and there will be an opportunity to buy signed copies of Giuseppe’s books.
