Children’s Picture Book Writing

Always wanted to write a children’s book? Got an idea but not sure how to turn it into a story? In these four workshops you will be guided through outlining, drafting and editing a short story for children. Learn how to work with an illustrator (or plan illustrations yourself) and about pathways to publication, with a focus on self-publishing. All levels of experience are welcome, though this class is geared towards beginners. Zee is an author, illustrator and educator passionate about helping people find and nurture their creativity.

Writing & Self-Publishing Seminar

With over a dozen books under my belt, from children’s chapter books to illustrated non-fiction to quick-and-dirty zines, and having played an advisory role for many budding authors, I have a wealth of experience to share with you. Each talk can be tailored to your group’s needs, covering idea generation, drafting, editing, formatting, publishing, distribution, and marketing.

Zine Making Workshop

Zines are a form of ‘mini maga-zines’ that embrace the DIY aesthetic. You’ll get to see a range of different zines for inspiration, learn how to make a mini zine, and learn different ways to bind your work (think of this like a basic book-binding workshop). Previous participants have loved getting to be creative and hands-on in this fun workshop.

Get a group together and I can come to you with all the materials you will need – teachers, this is a great workshop for your students; adults, this is a fun workshop to feel like a kid again!
