The Picture Book Project is an annual collaboration between Richmond Young Writers and professional artists in the community in which kids become published authors! Students ages 11-17 write stories in a spring workshop, after which they are paired with professional artists in the community to plan a real, honest-to-goodness published picture book. Artists bring them to life visually over the summer, and the books are published each fall by Richmond Young Writers Press.

Which means: this special 8-week workshop won’t end when our class stops meeting! It’s a great opportunity to experience the full writing experience: raw story generation, editing, getting that beautiful illustrated copy back in your hands, and finally, sharing it with the world. Writers will have the opportunity to participate in readings, signings, and literary events in the fall to show off their new books!

These limited edition, funny, heart-rending, mind-bending, beautiful works are available for purchase between September and December each year.
