WD picture book workshop with crit

Discussion started on

There's a Writer's Digest workshop coming up (tomorrow!) on writing picture books. It includes a crit from Allison Moore (who happens to be my editor at Little, Brown) or agent Jodell Sadler.

A few years ago I took a Writer's Digest PB writing workshop given by Mary Kole (a former agent) and I found it really helpful.

The cost is $89.99

Thanks Diana! I can't attend but I think I might sign up anyway as you can view the webinar afterwards. The cost isn't too prohibitive either!

I took the WD workshop with Mary Kole a few years ago, too, and found it helpful and thorough. I wasn't able get out to a live conference so this definitely was the next best thing, and for less $$.

Just signed up!

Ditto on the conference, I have both location (live in Vermont) and cost working against me!

 :dancer I hope you find it useful, Beth! I agree that it's a nice alternative if you can't attend a conference.

Thanks, DianaM. Please tell me if the critique helped you make revisions that helped you to sell the book. I am thinking of signing up. Not sure how useful it will be. Thanks, Rani

Iyerani, I didn't take this particular workshop. I took a different one that was offered a few years ago. I still refer to my notes from that to this day. It's a learning experience. But I can't say for sure if this will be useful to you.
