Cook Up a Picture Book: Group Coaching

© Lizzie Finlay

Picture book coaching in small groups with an experienced editor.


Sift out the best ideas from your “bottom drawer” and fine-tune your picture books to create marketable work. Get personalized feedback on your work!


In this online coaching course, held over six weeks, I will help you to figure out the key picture book ingredients you are missing, show you how to mix them together, and finish off and ice your picture book so it’s ready to serve up to editors and agents.


Our aim is to create at least one marketable picture book by the end of our six-week coaching session.


It will be fun and scrumptilicious!


How does it work? Our class will be limited to 4 people. Before we start, you will be invited to send in up to three picture books for review and I will suggest the strongest one to work on first. Or if you just have one picture book that's fine too!


• each week, we will meet online and workshop key aspects of writing picture books, based on the group's work. The course will be take place during a two-hour-long webinar (for start dates, see below).


• each person will get weekly, one-to-one written editorial feedback on their picture books and benefit from group critiques


Surprise! At the end of the class, you will have the opportunity to submit your work to an editor or agent and I will work with you to hone your submission.
