Course Description

They say we all have a book inside us. Whether it be a poem, a short story, a diary or memoir.
We will explore how words and images help tell a story. We look at the history of Children's Books and how successful authors such as Michael Rosen and Raymond Briggs have explored subjects that work for both adults and children.
Illustrated books and storyboarding will also be covered, as will publication options.
Amanda's own book 'Bye, Bi-Polar Bear' was written during lockdown.
