If you want to write the next best-selling children's books or just want to create stories for your own kids, this workshop is for you. Learn how to write stories kids and young adults will love and find out what you need to know to sell your book. Special option: You may, but don't have to, bring 2 or 3 copies of the opening couple pages (first 500 words) of your children's book or young adult novel (or 1000 words if that will get you to the end of your picture book or to the end of your first chapter.) If you're not currently working on a children's story, don't worry, we'll get you started on the spot!
With guest speaker Yasemin Ucar, senior editor Kids Can Press.
