Webinar: Layering in Layers in Picture Books with Wendi Silvano
Saturday, August 14, 2021 at 12 PM Eastern/11 AM Central/10 AM Mountain/9 AM Pacific
SCBWI Members: $15; Non-members: $25 Optional Picture Book Fiction Manuscript from Wendi Silvano following live webinar: $70
Does your story fall “flat”? Does it have too much of a “surface-level” feel? If so, you need to add layers. A picture book with more than one layer will have more than one reason to be read and re-read. Layers will increase the payoff and marketability of your story, and make it all the more enticing to an editor and your readers. In this workshop, Wendi will discuss (and show examples of) many different types of layers you can consider adding to help give your picture book manuscript that extra depth and delight.
