Writing "Musket’s Big Adventure: A Quest to Find the Gold and Blue Mountains" - Most writers who are lucky enough to get published never get to pick the artwork, typography, photos or even the illustrator for their printed work. The children’s book, “Musket’s Big Adventure: A Quest to Find the Gold and Blue Mountains,” was completely written, designed and illustrated by West Virginians. Jake Stump, from Terra Alta, and Brad Stalnaker, from Elkins, have spent the last couple of years visiting schools, libraries and daycares throughout West Virginia to present the making of a mascot. In this workshop, Stump and Stalnaker will read excerpts from the book and show the process of making a book from start to finish. They will also show how children can write, illustrate and make their own books. Children who are interested in writing and adults who are interested in writing children’s books are encouraged to attend. Registration is required and is limited to 48 participants.
