Picture Book Writing Course - Art of Arc
How to Analyze Your Picture Book Manuscript
Fresh. Straight forward. Thought provoking. Idea generating. WOW!
ART OF ARC is one of the most comprehensive writing classes I've ever taken. It breaks down complex aspects of story structure in a clear manner that helped me to understand every element of picture books, from hook to satisfying ending.
Great information, wonderfully laid out to lead you systematically through analyzing and improving your manuscript.
Alayne Kay Christian does the BEST in-depth critiques. I am so excited to revise with her comments and suggestions in mind. Reading her notes was like taking a super writing workshop with a pro!  Thank
you so much, Alayne. - V. K.
