Have you always wanted to write for kids, but never knew where to start?  Maybe you’re already working on your own stories or novel for young people, but don’t know where to get feedback. In this workshop, we’ll spark our creativity with in-class prompts and (optional) take-home exercises, receiving supportive feedback. Students are also welcome to bring work they’re developing outside of class — even the messiest drafts are encouraged! Beginning and experienced writers welcome.

The fee for the 6-week, 12-hour workshop is $150. Workshop is limited to 8 students.
