Today we’re very happy to announce the return of our sold-out Masterclass events – with THREE new dates.
We’re holding two new How to Write Picture Books masterclasses, and one more How to Write Children’s Fiction masterclass – so if you didn’t manage to get a ticket the first time around, now’s your chance!
Our first How to Write Picture Books masterclass sold out in six hours, with an incredibly long waiting list for cancellations – and so this time, we’ve decided to announce two dates.
These will be intensive, all-day writing masterclasses, with sessions from authors, editors, agents, staff at Nosy Crow, and more – all focussed on writing picture books. There’ll be practical suggestions, advice on every aspect of writing, from rhyme and scansion, to editing a text, working alongside illustrators, understanding the format, and more, as well as guidance about what comes after – finding an agent, understanding a contract, and international selling.
As part of the day, there’ll also be one-on-one manuscript critiques for every attendee (for anyone who has sent along writing samples in advance).
Our two How to Write Picture Book masterclasses are taking place on Saturday, 12 September and Saturday, 7 November.
Ticket price includes tea and coffee breaks throughout the day, lunch, and a glass of wine (and cake!) at the end of the day – and Early Bird tickets are available now! You can book your place onto either masterclass with the forms below:

And as well as our two picture book events, we’ll also be holding a repeat of our very first masterclass event, How to Write Children’s Fiction. Another intensive, all-day writing masterclass, the focus of this event will be largely on what’s referred to by some as “middle-grade” fiction – there’ll be advice and sessions on every aspect of writing, from shaping your story structure to drafting a synopsis, understanding different genres (from funny books to fantasy), and getting to grips with writing a series.
There’ll be editors, agents, authors and staff at Nosy Crow covering every part of the writing process.
As with or picture book masterclass, there’ll also be one-on-one manuscript critiques for every attendee (for anyone who has sent along writing samples in advance).
Our How to Write Children’s Fiction masterclass is taking place on Saturday, 10 October.
Once again, ticket price includes tea and coffee breaks throughout the day, lunch, and a glass of wine and cake at the end of the day. Early Bird tickets are available now, and you can book your place onto our fiction masterclass with the form below:

We hope you can join us – and if you’d like to attend one of our masterclasses, don’t delay in booking – we expect them to sell out very quickly!
