Developing Story Arcs for Quiet Picture Books

with Lisa Katzenberger

Do quiet books still have a story arc?

Yes! Even the most gentle, lyrical picture books can include a story arc. If you listen closely, you just might hear it! This webinar discusses examples of picture books that are considered “quiet” yet still have a narrative arc. Join picture book author Lisa Katzenberger to learn how to identify story arcs in quiet picture books and build one in your own manuscript.

"This webinar was ASTOUNDING! AWESOME! Thank you so much, Lisa. So many people write quiet books - you've given simple steps to make them marketable! "
