Updated schedule for 2011…new day!

Please note that our workshops for this next cycle have switched to Wednesdays at the request of many people who can’t make it to the Thursday workshops. We hope this helps, and we look forward to seeing you at the workshops!

What’s the next workshop?

So many of the ideas we have when it comes to writing for children are inspired by real life events. The challenge is turning those moments of inspiration into a manuscript that has widespread appeal to publishers and readers who have no connection to those events so that you can SELL YOUR STORY!

If you’re like to learn to use your real life inspirations to create engaging stories for children that you can SELL then you will likely find our upcoming workshop – Writing From Real Life – beneficial to you!

The workshop will take place in downtown Vancouver (Seymour & Nelson) from 6pm-9pm on Thursday, June 24 2010. Spaces are limited.
