Creating Children's Books I
WRCT 265
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

The goal of the course is to develop the skills necessary to create stories and sequential art specifically aimed at young readers. In an industry that welcomes unique voices and styles, there are underlying guidelines that inform children's literature and typically apply to most picture books. The course covers the creation, style, layout, and pacing of sequential art as well as the structure, content, and specific considerations for writing manuscripts for children.

In addition to studying the craft of effective storytelling and visual narration, we'll take a look at the business of publishing that will familiarize students with practices in the industry.
