Writing for Children: Releasing the Child Within


Course description

Do you long to write picture books for children or stories for young adults, but don’t know where to start? Join us in exploring the delicate art of writing compelling stories in few words. Activities and discussion will focus on techniques for building character, setting, plot and perspective, and crafting an exciting story for young audiences. We will practice writing techniques, examine successful children’s books and discover why it is important to be aware of the child as audience. You will also learn what editors look for in a cover letter, and how manuscripts should be formatted for submissions to a publisher. Come with enthusiasm and bring your ideas.
