This workshop offers a basic overview of each age range in children’s books. There will be an explanation of each of those age ranges and a consideration of their content and word count demands. There will be creative opportunities for each of these age groups and information on where to find out about publishers and agents.
Want to write for children? Need further guidance on the age range you’ve chosen or not sure which age range is for you? This one day workshop offers you the chance to try your hand at all age ranges, from picture book to teens.
This course includes a half hour lunch break. Please bring your own lunch.
