The Written Scene

May 14, 2024

Our experiences in life shape so much of our work as creators. For author and illustrator Jessica Woo, she relishes the inspiration it brings.

In this episode of The Written Scene, Jessica discusses writing for both kids and the parents, competing in non-farming activities for 4H (and don't worry, she explains what 4H is), how critiquing other writing helps your own writing, what is learned about storytelling through animation, having a visual in mind while writing stories, having patience with your art and walking away from it if you have to, using the critiques we get to point out areas we may have missed in our work, the importance of listening when collaborating, cutting characters you love from the story, learning from mistakes instead of having regrets, and much more.
