Everyone has a favorite children’s book but have you ever thought about writing one?J 11

The National Writers Series is hosting a virtual class taught by Jillian Manning (author of a half-dozen “Sesame Street” books) alongside her husband, journalist/writer Craig Manning.

The class is aimed at students ages 11-18 and will teach them how to write a children’s picture book, how to pair art and their writing together, when to use rhyme vs. regular prose and how to create a great arc for their own short story.

The four’s Xavier Hershovitz caught up with the authors turned teachers ahead of the class. Watch the video above to see their conversation.
