Literature briefs

There are six literature creation briefs running across the Pathways programme. Each brief is devised and delivered by a different children’s publisher or publishers. Briefs set out an illustration task for mentees to complete within a fixed timeframe, producing small- to medium-scale items of illustrated literature within the specified format and parameters, which are then critiqued by the publishers as well as agents. The first brief is delivered at the 2019 residential; and the last brief will be to create a draft story, dummy book or strong extract of a final work of literature in one of the four forms explored in the short courses. Some of the very best literature will be selected to take to print and published in small print-runs for sale on the Pathways website and in selected children’s bookshops.
