Whether there’s fall or spring rain keeping you indoors, snuggle up in something cozy and learn about Editing Children’s Picture Books with popular EFA instructor Lou Piccolo. You’ll learn everything you need to know about the art and craft of picture books and the best ways to guide authors through the maze of industry standards. The next session begins on September 20, and this class often sells out, so register soon!
