Writing The Picture Book with Mindy Hardwick will be held Saturday, October 22, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Via Zoom.

Picture Books are the most beloved story form of children's writing. But how easy is it to write one? In this workshop, we'll look at how to create a memorable child character, how to craft a simple plot to be read multiple times, explore pacing, and discuss how to publish picture books. The workshop is designed for those interested in learning how to write a picture book story and is also beneficial for illustrators.

Mindy Hardwick holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her middle grade book, Some Stories Are Not Seen, in which a young girl wants to save the sea stars from the wasting syndrome, is based on Mindy's experience volunteering with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program. Mindy's picture book, Finders Keepers, was published as a digital book with Houghton Mifflin and is based on the Finders Keepers event in Lincoln City, Oregon. Currently, Mindy's picture book, Puffin Protectors, is on submission. Mindy was a substitute teacher for the North Oregon Coast schools for two years and currently teaches creative writing and a college composition class for an online high school in Portland. She divides her time between Cannon Beach and Portland.
