Dragons! Pirates! Cowgirls! Mastodon-sized dung beetles! Children’s fiction never fails to let a writer’s imagination go wild. In this hands-on workshop, writers with an interest in picture books, middle grade, or YA fiction will learn how to craft compelling stories and characters that will make young readers want to keep turning pages. Works in progress will be constructively critiqued in a supportive environment. And real-world advice on the publishing industry will help your completed manuscript stand out in a crowd.

This class skips May 27th for Memorial Day.


This is an IN-PERSON class.
