Who needs picture book boot camp this summer? Still a few spots left!

A good-for-you impulse buy is summer class tuition. 
Still a few spots left for my UW class THAT STARTS TOMORROW!!!
Take your picture book dummy ideas from flab to fab—
this class is open to writers and illustrators of all levels. 
Tuesdays and Thursdays June 15 to July 8.

Info and registration details here. We'll be on the gorgeous UW Seattle campus. The Quad couldn't be lovelier this time of year, you know. And if you sit outside the Music Building you can hear the music students practicing—and they don't suck, so it's almost a free opera/violin concert. And if you sit outside the Art Building someone may or may not have added an 'F' to the sign.

It will be a cupcake laden 6 hours each week (tomorrow probably the old standard of my Nana's chocolate chip zucchini in cupcake form with cream cheese frosting.)

Julie Paschkis and Paul Schmid are both on board as guest speakers. We'll be celebrating Eric Carle's birthday, too (he won't be there, but for sure some hungry caterpillars will be!)

I am tickled pink over the book report assignment we'll be doing tomorrow and cannot wait to share it!
