  • Elizabeth (a.k.a. “e”) is currently pursuing a PhD in Children’s Literature at the University of Glasgow, so her available times are limited. However, if able to schedule and event, she can talk to your group about the nuts and bolts of breaking into children’s books, writing picture books, creating dummies, illustrating picture books, the design concepts behind picture books, marketing yourself as an illustrator, chasing your passion, etc. She can talk to your group about writing: tackling topics that are perhaps bigger than you are and what to do when the story finds you. She can also adapt a talk to your specific needs. Please click here to learn more: http://dulemba.com/index_visits.html
