Explore the multi-layered, multi-genre world of children's literature through a mix of discussion, writing activities, and writing workshop. From the theoretical to nitty-gritty, hands-on craft techniques, we’ll tackle how to construct and revise a picture book, middle grade, or young adult novel, and what to do with it once you’re done.
