Writing SEL Books That Sell

with Pat Zietlow Miller

Are you ready to write a new category of picture books? Pat Zietlow Miller is here to help!

Most picture books only have a few words per page. But, the best picture books pack lots of wisdom and love into that limited space and contribute to readers' social and emotional learning (SEL). SEL picture books introduce readers to a wider world than the one they've grown up knowing—while focusing on the emotions and experiences that connect us all. Beloved picture book author Pat Zietlow Miller defines two types of SEL picture books and talks you through how to approach each one, find those universal emotions, and weave them into stories readers want to come back to again and again.

This webinar purchase includes lifetime access to the 90-minute video, transcript, downloadable audio, and an SEL reading list to get you started.

"Thank you for preparing and presenting this exceptional webinar, Julie and Pat...I’ll be revising my SEL stories with Pat’s wisdom in mind. Kudos! "

Pat Zietlow Miller knew she wanted to be a writer ever since her seventh-grade English teacher read her paper about square-dancing skirts out loud in class and said: “This is the first time anything a student has written has given me chills.” (Mrs. Mueller rocks! That's why I dedicated my picture book BE STRONG to her.)

Pat started out as a newspaper reporter and wrote about everything from dartball and deer-hunting to diets and decoupage. Then, she joined an insurance company -- and then another -- and edited their newsletters and magazines.

Now, Pat focuses on her favorite thing -- writing picture books. She's sold 25 books and is always working on more.

Pat has one wonderful husband, two delightful daughters and two pampered cats. She doesn’t watch much TV, but she does love “Chopped." and "Tournament of Champions."

Pat lives in Wisconsin.
