Publishing isn't just for grown-ups!

Here at The Giggling Pig students will be guided on writing and illustrating their very own story. We will then organize and submit each book to an online book publisher. Books typically arrive within 4-6 weeks after the books have all been completed. All books completed during this workshop will print as soft cover books. 

This is a very special course that Hannah has wanted to bring to students for quite some time. Children will learn about self publishing and developing their individual style. During the 12 weeks, students will create their very own short stories. Students can work on picture books, or poetry too. The class size will be kept very small to ensure proper individual attention. 


It is Hannah's goal to make sure that each child publishes their very own book. Once the course ends she will be working on editing and creating these books ready for print. One book is included as part of the course, but additional can always be ordered. 


Each child’s book will be available for purchase on AMAZON in the USA and UK.  After the books are published, we will organize a night to honor the young authors and invite the public in to a meet and greet. This will give the students a chance to make some book sales!
