An idea is the seed that grows into a story.
In this program, Laura will:
  • Share her own Writer's Notebooks and connect them to her picture books
  • Engage participants in a conversation about observation and ideas
  • Guide participants as they design and create their own Writer's Notebooks
  • Send participants off with a goal to turn one of the ideas they collected into a story
