This is an in-house writing workshop ‘JUST WRITE’ with Circle member Maureen Nisbet.
Another good turnout of members received a fascinating insight into the creation of a children’s book by author Doug Vallgren and illustrator Karl Newson. We heard how the original idea was formed from the author creating a story for his young daughter, and how this evolved into the first book many years later. The various stages leading up to publication were described in detail, including putting together the book, including the work with Karl the illustrator. Doug also described how printing was arranged and finally the sales and marketing side of the project. A considerable amount of the original artwork was on show and the audience participated in a useful discussion following the talk.
Our thanks to Doug and Karl for a thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening.
Circle members are looking forward to the visit of Children’s author DOUG VALLGREN and illustrator KARL NEWSON at 7.30 pm at The Assembly House Norwich on Tuesday 7th October 2014. They are the creators of best-selling children’s book RUPERT THE DINOSAUR
