Event description
This 2-hour workshop will show writers and illustrators how they can make their picture book characters come alive through words and images.

About this Event

Your character is your story! Create them well, you’ll have your readers championing for them. This workshop is also meant for STUDENTS who want to pursue narrative writing & illustrations in the field of children's book publishing.

Characterisation in picturebooks is not unlike characterisation in any sort of writing or drawing whether it is fiction or nonfiction. In picturebook characterisation, the creator must bear in mind that text and image intermingle to produce reaction in your reader.

In this 2-hour online workshop, participants will get an opportunity to learn from our mentors while directly interacting with them. Each mentor will spend one full hour with participants walking them through the details of "character development" & "character design" from a writer's & an illustrator's perspectives.

Session highlights will be -

  • Components of “Getting Your Character on the Page & Canvas”
  • Putting Flesh to Bones
  • Character & Conflict
  • Happily Ever After
