Intersession: April 21 • May 5, 19

“You have knowledge/And imagination to share/So write a book for children/ And you’ll always be there.” Channel your inner child by reading, listening to and learning how to write from children’s books, both old and new. Discuss what makes them appeal to children. We will consider format, style, vocabulary, age, grade, reading and interest levels. We will discuss factors that make writing a book for children both challenging and fun. The second hour will be devoted to sharing books you’ve loved and listening to stories in progress. Illustrating and marketing will also be discussed.

Instructor: Stephanie Leon   Coordinator: Jan Maynard
