Strategies for Revising Picture Books
Bring a printed copy of your work-in-progress and prepare to workshop it (note: sharing is not required). You’ll be guided through both macro and micro revision strategies, as well as learning to put each word on trial for its life. You will take home a revision guide so you can workshop multiple manuscripts on your own.
Leanne Shirtliffe is the author of the five picture books, including The Change Your Name Store, I Love Sharks Too, and Saving Thunder the Great: the True Story of a Gerbil’s Rescue from the Fort McMurray Wildfire. When she’s not trying to put words in some semblance of order, Leanne can be found teaching high school or hanging out with her family in the suburbs of Calgary. She used to travel.
