WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
This course is so well put together. It especially keeps up with the style of the printed picture books of today increasing your potential for publication.
The creative side of writing and, if you wish, illustrating your picture book ideas can be done here with the help of Arree and Storyteller Academy.
I highly recommend Storyteller Academy. And, I can’t say enough about the personable and encouraging Arree Chung. His own recent published pictures books speak volumes of his knowledge and creativity.” Stella Lopez
