Telling It True: The Art of Storytelling in Picture Book Biography and Narrative Nonfiction 2018

About us

Engage children in the lives of others through captivating events and compelling narrative threads.

Names may not hook your readers, but a well-defined true story can inspire, delight, and teach. Biographies have the power to do all three. Readers crave stories like Step Right Up: How Doc and Jim Key Taught the World about Kindness; I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark; Monsieur Marceau: Actor Without Words; Lost in the Amazon; and many others, to help explain history, humanity, and our greater world.

Join Leda Schubert and Tod Olson as they explore the art of writing biographies for children and teens in both long and short forms. A good biography fuels a story with research and brings subjects to life through accuracy and authenticity. Leda and Tod will explore ways to weave narrative structure with research into your manuscript. The workshop includes lecture, hands-on writing exercises, one-on-one critiques, and time for revision.

Attendees will submit a picture book biography, the first chapter of a longer biography (2,000 words max), or a book proposal. (Note: Book proposals must include sample writing.)
