Find focus, gain confidence, and learn about writing for kids! This workshop is designed to help you finish your mid-grade or young adult novel by exploring plot development through discussion, peer-sharing, writing exercises, and by analyzing a recently published book. Come with a work-in-progress – or at least an idea for one. A newly released children’s book will be used while discussing plot elements. Participants will be notified of the title prior to the first class. [ALL LEVELS]
