Angela's Notebook

ANGELA'S NOTEBOOK mixes animation, old movies, storytelling, and interviews with writers and illustrators to teach creative writing in a fun, entertaining and educational format.

Children have become more and more interested in the writing process and they love the whole concept of making a book. Because of the movement in education to get away from basal readers and to introduce trade books at birth, there's a hunger to know what "real" writers and illustrators do. Due to limited budgets, very few schools have the resources to bring in an author or an illustrator to speak to their students. This series provides a way for children to "meet" authors and illustrators.

ANGELA'S NOTEBOOK provides viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at every aspect of writing, from novels to graphic novels, sports writing to playwriting, and every genre in between. Every part of the writing process, from the research involved in writing a non-fiction novel to the inspiration behind a comic strip or popular children's movie, will be explored on ANGELA'S NOTEBOOK.
