Have you always wanted to write a picture book or a book for children or teens?
This writing workshop is targeted for adult writers of picture books, early and middle grade and young adult fiction. Our goal will be to support each writer’s efforts to develop and hone new projects as well as works-in-progress.
We will explore the art of creating characters that young people care about and with whom they can identify. In addition, we will exercise our ability to bring emotion to our narratives, to bring setting to life, and to strengthen our plots for greatest impact.
The weekly sessions will employ positive, nonthreatening feedback in a small group environment. Workshop members are invited to bring up to five double-spaced, 12-point-font pages of writing to the first session.
