In 2023 I founded the Manzanita Children's Book Community. This is an online platform to support community-based grassroots children's book creation. Within this community I am launching a new program. Here is a flyer with information:
Create Your Children’s Book Cohort – Starting in January 2024
with Laura Atkins, Manzanita Children’s Book Community
Join the Journey: Sign up here
What: Unlock the world of children's book creation with the supportive "Create Your Children’s Book" cohort. Members will gather to support each other as they develop their concepts into children’s books. The goal is for people to tell the stories that THEY want to tell, for themselves and their communities.
This cohort will be held and guided by Laura Atkins who has thirty years of experience in the children’s book world, including working at Children’s Book Press, Orchard Books, and as an editor at Lee & Low Books. For much of this time she has offered freelance services to publishers and individuals wanting to develop and publish their stories – increasingly folks who are self-publishing. Laura is also in the process of self-publishing her own picture book, which is adding to her experience in understanding this process.
