“The Rock Retreat, a residency for writers and Illustrators who want to create the next generation of books for children and young adults.
Up to 30 attendees will work with facilitators in small groups focusing on the craft of writing and illustrating. Time will be spent talking about the building blocks of great stories in words and pictures as well as focusing on the practicalities to make stories work. Attendees will be guided through practical work and have lots of time to create their own pieces of illustration and writing. We shall invite international authors and illustrators to join us on zoom throughout the week to share insights into their careers as well as to expand the conversation and teaching attendees will be taking part in during the retreat.”
