The final Nosy Crow Masterclass of the year took place on Saturday – How to Write Picture Books – and it was another fantastically creative, inspiring, and informative day, filled with advice, lessons and guidance on writing picture books.
The day included brilliant sessions from Nosy Crow’s Managing Director, Kate Wilson, literary agent Helen Mackenzie Smith, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam and Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble author Tracey Corderoy, award-winning picture book author-illustrator (and illustrator of the Bizzy Bear series) Benji Davies, and more.
And as well as these individual talks, we also offered one-to-one manuscript critiques to all of our attendees, along with lunch, cakes, wine, and lots more.
And here’s what some of our attendees said on Twitter afterwards:

As with our previous Masterclasses, this was a sold-out day (with a long waiting list). We haven’t announced details for any future masterclasses at the moment, but if you’re interested in attending one, you can sign up to our newsletter below, and you’ll be the first to hear as soon as any new dates are confirmed – and you can find out about our current programme of events (including our forthcoming Illustrator Salon, with Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler) here.
