picture books

A picture book, like a poem, is one of the hardest pieces of writing to get right. Every word must be packed with meaning.

With today’s publishers looking for meaningful picture books under 750 words, writing a strong picture book is not for the faint hearted.

I can help get your picture book into the best possible shape. I’ll work with you on building a creative arc, pacing, creating powerful page turns, refining your words, and finishing your story in an unexpected, inevitable way.

My feedback with arrive in the form of an Editorial Letter, outlining what’s working and what needs attention. I’ll focus on issues large and small, providing detailed suggestions for revision and moving forward. I’ll make myself available for questions and discussion, so that you have a solid plan for moving forward.
