After the success of our first two online picture book writing workshops, Karadi Tales brings you yet another in-depth look at picture books and techniques for writing them. Over three days, Karadi Tales Publishing Director Shobha Viswanath will take you through the basics of writing the perfect book for young children. The elements of a good picture book, the dos and don'ts of picture book writing, the relationship between words and picture, how to submit and pitch to publishers and more. There will be a number of writing exercises, and you can work one on one with a team of editors who will give you real-time feedback on your story.

The first two days are for an introduction to picture books and writing exercises, and the third day is for feedback on your story. The dates are 16th July, 17th July (day 1 and 2) and 20th July, 21st July, 22nd July (day 3). We will be splitting participants across 20th, 21st, and 22nd July for feedback as it will not be possible to give everyone individual feedback on one day.

This time, we will also be sending participants pre-workshop prep with the links to a few picture books to read for free. And offer a discount code to anyone who wishes to purchase Karadi Tales picture books from our website -

Participants will receive a course completion certificate if requested.
