"The Picture Book Project" originated by Richmond Young Writers - an organization that teaches creative writing to young people eight to 17 - features stories written by youth, and illustrations created collaboratively by professional artists and young people in the workshop. The illustrations from each book will be on display alongside the stories in this preview of each. You can purchase a book at richmondyoungwriters.com.
