Announcing the speakers for our next Nosy Crow Masterclass, How to Write Picture Books

We recently released details for the next Nosy Crow Masterclass – another edition of our How to Write Picture Books event, taking place on June 9th.

The masterclass sold-out in record time – and today, we’re very pleased to reveal the full line-up of speakers for the masterclass!

The day will begin with an overview of the children’s book market, setting a context for picture books in 2018.

Nosy Crow’s Managing Director, Kate Wilson, will deliver a crash course on the editorial essentials for writing picture books – a distilled masterclass all in itself.

Louise Lamont, literary agent at LBA Books, will talk about her role as an agent – what she looks for in a submission, do’s and don’ts for authors, and more.

Over lunch, there’ll be the opportunity for our attendees to receive one-on-one manuscript feedback.

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam author Tracey Corderoy will begin our afternoon sessions with a talk on how she writes, covering topics including the differences (and challenges) of writing in rhyme and prose, where she finds her inspiration, and more.

And finally, Kate Wilson close the masterclass with a session on the importance of thinking internationally, and writing picture books for a global audience – followed by a glass of wine at the end of the day!
