Writing Chapter Books
Registration is now open for my new class at RISD Continuing Ed, 'Writing Chapter Books.'
When: Tuesday night, 7-10pm from September 13th - December 6th.
Where: Rhode Island School of Design, Providence Campus.
My spring class 'Writing for Children's Books' is a suggested prerequisite, but both beginning and intermediate writers will find this twelve week course a full and in depth grounding in writing a solid narrative with engaging characters, understanding technical aspects of writing fiction such as Point of View, handling exposition, and developing an all important 'voice,' in books for readers between ages 6 and 12. We'll also be looking at writing great query letters and the submissions process.
For a full course description, please go here.
On the weekend of November 12th-13th, I'll also be teaching a weekend workshop on picture book editing and revision, and I'll be editing your picture book manuscripts on-screen in class, plus we'll be doing various revision exercises.
Hope to see you there!
