Loeb School has book seminar
How do you turn an idea into a children’s book? The Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications is offering a workshop on Saturday, Nov. 14, to help answer that question.
Taught by author/illustrator Maryann Cocca- Leffler, of Amherst, the workshop will offer useful information on how to create and sell your projects to publishers without an agent. Students will hear about the path to publication, from ideas to written drafts, rejections, revisions, more rejections, more revisions, storyboards, sketches and final art.
The workshop also includes a look at the business side of the children’s book industry and insight into the new world of ebooks.
Cocca-Leffler has written and illustrated more than 50 books for children, including "Mr. Tanen’s Ties," winner of the Indiana Hoosier Book Award and the Florida Reading Award, and "Bus Route to Boston," winner of the Parents Choice Award.
