Guided Write-In: Picture Book Idea Generation

Bring your pen and paper for a writing session focused on generating new ideas. The session will focus on picture books, but will apply to easy readers and chapter books as well. Writers from other categories welcome. Jen will guide us, and we will each write independently. Please note that we won't be sharing work / reading aloud during this session.

Lecture replays are available after the free trial ends. To end your trial early, email .
