"How to Create Your Own Children's Storybook"

Mommies, teachers, students, and aspiring writers, mark the date: September 5, 2015! A best friend tagged me a link from Story Writing School  about a 3-hour crash course on "story writing and  illustration for young audiences". This will be held from 2 - 5 pm at The Forum 4F Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street.
The course promises to give lectures and demos so that attendees can create our very own 32 page picture book! In fact, we can print or export whatever we're gonna be creating as a PDF ebook! I think this will be the best seminar give-aways ever - a book made by me for Baby Charley. Because the course will deal with everything basic (art and writing), it's a perfect date for anyone who loves kids - mommies especially! 

As a writing teacher and a mommy, I'm pretty excited to attend this because I think this is a first of its kind that I'll get to attend. Usually, I attend seminars for teachers, so I'm really looking forward to this because it'll benefit me both as a teacher and as a mommy. 
Soon, Baby, you could be reading Mommy's books

And oh, I'm happy that teachers get a 20% discount from the 1500 published rate. More yay's! :) 

The course will be led by Dr. Joem Antonio, who is a children's book author himself and a (kapit, mommies!) 6 time Palanca Awardee. He has a PhD in Creative Writing in UP, and I'm kinda wondering if we could invite him also to give a seminar in our school. Or if I could enrol in one of his classes. Hmmmmnnnn... You can read more about him here

The event was organized by Blue Backpack Events Management who will also hold other writing seminars  this year like "How to Write Love Stories" and "How to Write Plays for Theatre". 

So, Mommies and teachers, see you on Sept. 5 @ Fullybooked, BHS. 


  1. Thanks for the lead, Mommy! I hope that I'll be able to attend. One of my dreams is to write story books for children. I have ideas but I don't know how to start.

    1. Hi, Mommy Sj! I do hope I'd see you there. I have lots of ideas, too, mostly for Baby Charley, and I think it's a great opportunity to learn the art of storywriting for children first hand from a writer and Palanca Awardee himself. :D


I would love to hear your thoughts!
