WRESA is excited to announce that Brian Lies will be presenting on October 5, 2022 at Western Carolina University at Biltmore Park. The workshop will cover the process of writing and illustrating a picture book from ideas through finished artwork, with a lot of emphasis on growth mindset-related concepts. “It’s really important to show students that growth and achievement are the result of a lot of hard work, not the easy product of some kind of genius.” Come and learn strategies to promote the power of descriptive details, and why they’re essential in our writing. Get great ideas to revise rough drafts into stories.
“It is literally neurobiologically impossible to think deeply about things you don’t care about. The best and most durable learning occurs when content sparks interest and is relevant to a child’s life. —Dr. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang.
Join us as we strengthen CORE and make writing relevant for our students.
