Do you have the creative itch to tell stories but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you’ve been working on stories by yourself and you feel stuck. I’ve spent the last ten years becoming a published storyteller and I love what I do. I’ll share with you everything I’ve learned about creativity and show you how I craft stories. In addition to the course, I’ll work with you on your stories in critique groups and in our Storyteller Workshop Hour.
What is Making Picture Book Stories With Arree Chung?
1. An Intimate Learning Experience
Arree shares his own creative process in formulating and developing ideas. Arree takes you from the the first step of generating a picture book idea to developing a dummy and manuscript. This is the same process Arree uses to develop his own storybooks.
2. Build A Story With Solid Foundation and Structure
Understand the basic elements that make up a story. Once you learn how to spot the basic elements, you’ll gain deeper understanding on how to build a story with solid foundations.
3. Understand the Creative Process And Tell the Story Inside of You
Discovering a good idea just the first step in the creative process. Now you’ll have to develop the story. Learn how to ride out the ups and downs of the creative process. Making Picture Books Stories will help you discover your inner voice and unlock your creativity.
4. Gain Insight On How To Present Your Work To Agents and Editors
Your story is developed and polished. What’s next? You’ll learn how to prepare your story and how to get your work seen by the right people. You’ll save time and take the stress out of submitting your work and finding representation.
