Dr Karenanne Knight has made a living from painting pictures and penning poems (plus she’s a mighty fine lecturer in illustration and creative writing, and has impressed some bigwig clients with her bespoke designs…). Now you too have the opportunity to learn from this veritable pro.
Book and Kitchen will be holding a masterclass for all aspiring children’s book writers and illustrators.
‘The Picture Book Maker – The Art of Writing and Illustrating Children’s Picture Books’ is a ten-week course designed to help you develop your skills and will run through coming up with the initial idea, creating characters, how to make a rough, creating a dummy book and – vitally – how to approach a publisher with your book.
As part of the course fee you will receive Kerananne’s brilliant new book from which you can develop your skills between classes. Numbers are limited to ten, ensuring you’ve always got undivided attention.
