Children’s Book Publishing Course. Come and enjoy the fun and creative process of writing and illustrating your own picture book.  In this hands on and interactive class, you will, get inspired brainstorming ideas, write a story, generate rough storyboards, create finished artwork and find help in publishing your book to Amazon. You will also have the option of having the digital formatting and exporting of the print ready PDF’s done for you. All students books will be promoted on this site with links to their books page on Amazon. 7:00pm - 9:00pm Creating Centre, Vankleek Hill, Ontario ( www.creatingcentre.ca ) 6 classes for $100 (+ Optional $100 for digital formating and PDF exporting. This service will provide you with the files you’ll need to publish your book on Amazon ) More detail: From the very beginning, this class was designed to bring the students’ work to the point of being a published physical book. Published to Amazon for sale to the public and giving each person access to purchase professionally published copies of their book. This is still the goal. That is why the classes will be closely connected to this website, ChildsBookshelf.com. The completed books will be displayed and marketed on the website, with Amazon links to their sales page. Following the advice of quite a few people I have made one change. The cost of the class has now been divided up. Separating the cost of the class with the cost of the publishing. As it stands now the class will cost $100 per student with the option to have their books digital formating and print ready PDF’s done for them at $100 per student. There is no obligation to pay for digital formating and PDF exporting after taking the class. It is completely optional. This is a 6 week course with one 2 hour class each week. Classes will be held at the Creating Centre in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. The classes will be hands on, social and interactive. Open for ages 10 to 286 years of age. ( Any persons over the age of 286 will be required to take a medical exam, at their own expense, to prove that they are still breathing. This unfortunately means that I can not accept any zombie students at this time. ) Items each student will need: 1- sketch book 2- access to a computer to type up final story (hand writing is fine in class but final stories will need to be typed into a digital file) 3- whatever art media you wish to work in ( example: watercolour paints or pencils, acrylic paints, pencil crayons, inks, coloured construction paper, etc.) 4- art paper Location: https://goo.gl/maps/2pZHwWitn4w
