Learn about the world of kidlit – from idea to publication – in this single-session bootcamp.
Do you have a great idea but need to learn the craft and conventions of the genre? Or have you already written a manuscript, but don’t know how to best edit it or get feedback on it? Maybe you’re curious about the business side of kidlit publishing? Whatever your questions and goals, you’ll cover it all with author and expert Juliet Bond, whose first picture book sold more than 50 thousand copies.
Students will take part in discussion and writing exercises to learn the rules of writing for kids, common story arcs, and how to get published in this popular market.
