Writing Rhyming Children's Picture Books (upcoming workshop)
Join me for the upcoming 2 hour workshop hosted by Lighthouse Writers Workshop as part of their LitFest. Rhyming picture books continue to captivate readers and writers alike. But what makes a good rhyming picture book? How does the rhyme serve the story and not the other way around? How do writers change up their rhyme scheme, use bridge stanzas and non-rhyming refrains to build tension, create humor and/or surprise us? In this seminar we’ll deconstruct rhyming picture books to explore these concepts, as well as scan rhyme–both published books and your own work if you have a work-in-progress.
DATE: June 16, 2022 TIME: 1:30 - 3:30 MDT
WHERE: Virtual (via Zoom)
