SUNDAY 26th September 10am-Noon (BST)
From concept to creation, go on a whistle-stop tour of how to write a picture book, with a focus on compelling characters, engaging plots and clear, emotional take-aways.
Clare Helen Welsh is a picture book author, writing tutor and WriteMentor’s Picture Book Writer in Residence 2021. She loves dreaming up stories for young readers and their families to enjoy, be that fictional, non-fiction or a blend of both. For many years she was a primary school teacher, which ignited her love of storytelling, reading and role-play. Clare lives in Devon with her husband, two children and her dog, Hope. When she isn’t imagining new worlds and creating characters, she enjoys walking on the beach and in the countryside, taking lots of inspiration from the natural world.
