RMC Workshop: Book Dummies

Created June 18, 2024 by Amy Ellerman

Rocky Mountain

Join Amber Owen (aka Z. B. Asterplume) for a deep dive into the process of making a book dummy. Learn about different kinds of book dummies and how they function – from the I’m-just-figuring-out-the-pace type of dummy to the I’m-looking-for-a-book-deal type of dummy. We will discuss how illustrators use a dummy to “write the pictures” so, writers, this could be an excellent opportunity for you, too! In fact, the more writers we have in the workshop, the better the conversation around the relationship between the words (authors) and the pictures (illustrators) will be. If you have a completed manuscript you'd like to work from, please bring two copies. If not, no worries; you can learn the dummying process using a provided mentor text. Paper to make a dummy will also be provided, but please bring your favorite pencil(s). We'll also have some scissors and tape to share, but feel free to bring your own. June 29, 1:00-3:00 pm MT.
