The NE Area is delighted to share a webinar with SCBWI-Wisconsin members on Wednesday, June 17th at 7 p.m. Picture book author, Baptiste Paul, will be presenting Mining the Memory as a Writing Tool!

In this online 90-minute Zoom class, Baptiste will discuss how to use your mind and past memories as a way to come up with new and exciting story ideas. Although Baptiste writes picture books, his methods can be used for novel writers as well. He will share his insights and writing process with us in this workshop.

Baptiste Paul is a Caribbean-born author of three books for children. His debut picture book, The Field, received starred reviews from Kirkus, The Horn Book, and Booklist. According to Kirkus, his co-authored book Adventures To School, will “will pique readers’ curiosity.” His picture book biography, I Am Farmer, chronicles the work of Cameroonian environmentalist Tantoh Nforba.

Born and raised on the island of Saint Lucia, Baptiste is a native Creole/Patois speaker who enjoys reading his books and sharing his experiences with anyone who will listen. You can find more information about his books on his website –
