My senior thesis focuses on my process of moving from a student to a producer of children's literature. I've compiled a story journal of ideas, read memoirs about authors and their writing processes, and chosen a story from my story journal to create my own picture book manuscript. My completed senior thesis will be composed of a final picture book manuscript, reflective paragraphs of my creative process, a portfolio that includes but is not limited to, drafts of my work, notes on a conference I attended with my mentor, and excerpts from my story journal.
