Writing for Children

This fun and interactive workshop engages participants in the magic of making books for children. We explore different genres and writing for different age groups. We dissect the craft and study the ingredients needed to make a great story. Using a range of writing techniques and exercises, we start developing our own stories. Participants have the opportunity to workshop stories together. We will also look at how to polish your manuscript for publishing, and paths you can take to become a published author.
