Below is some fast tips if you are in a rush, but don't miss to check the important 20 Do's and 20 Don'ts at the end of the first section. After that, there's more tip. But before I go any further, if you're fortunate, you'll find that the two most important persons in every writer's and editor's lives are they.

By Tanja BauerleI- I just finished The Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books. Mira Reisberg is so unbelievably spacious and well-informed that the last five week has been full of resource, information and hands-on experience that I can't await to translate into my own texts.
It inspires me and makes me think that my inner author is flourishing, all this is for the wonderful Mira. Melanie Moschella made me enjoy the on-line version of "The Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books"! There was a new class every day of the week with course memos and informational video from other children's book authors[and writers, operatives and booksellers].
but as a new author, I didn't know how to start. I particularly liked this course because of our small criticism groups and the individual criticism with Dr. Reisberg. Dr. Reisberg understood the children's book business and her continuous encouraging response was marvelous!
By Marcy Pusey - I just spent five week with the Children's Book Academy.... and I have to say: I was so impressed and endowed by the school that I concentrated more on submission, work, pitchen, questioning.... and writing. I have been working with a new awesome critics group, an e-book with all the information, accessing the site for a while longer, and Mira.
I can' believe Mira. I' ve sent a book to a publishing house I've worked with before (SNAP Learning) who liked and purchased my work! "By Wendy Greenley - I have been studying at Dr. Mira Reisberg's children's book academy for five consecutive months. With a new feeling for concentration and the belief that it is not enough to just create good picture-book quality - kids are deserving of great picture-books and it is up to the authors to take up this tempell.
Seriously, thank you, Mira. By Danielle Heitmuller- Dr. Mira Reisberg is an outstanding schoolteacher. Children's Book Academy has increased my writing abilities ten-fold. I' m optimistic about my script and am willing to use my recently gained writing experience to improve my writing work.
I attended two classes at Mira Reisberg's Children's Book Academy, although at first I had my doubt that an on-line course would be satisfactory. Several of the best of the best in the industry - some of them are also my dear ones - are willing and awaiting to provide you with incredible information:
You will be spoken to by our guests in individually produced video and writing interview, in which they share their views on everything, on how to organize their textbooks, research and write non-fiction literature, write biographical texts, create perfectly rhymed texts, create delicious languages, work with storytelling, be refused and continue what they seek when they buy a book, what they seek in a submission, create an authoring forum to make them more appealing to publishing houses and much more.
Most of Mira's undergraduates have been offered contracts (160 and more), relaunched their career and/or ended up as an agent. Alumni have won almost every prize, among others the Caldecott Honour, Jane Addams and Pura Belpre, and the agencies have responded very positively to the work of the school-leavers. You will see that we work unbelievably harshly for you and all we ask is that you sign and return us a copy of your book or, if it becomes a film, we can accompany you somewhere at a première:)FAQsFREQUENTL: Q: What is there?
One: Anyone with a love or interest in writing or publishing children's picture-book. F: When does the course start? One of the main focuses of the course is on writing children's picture-book, but you will gain a lot of useful information and can improve your chance of publishing as a sought-after author/illustrator.
