No one cares about stories more than young readers do. This workshop focuses on writing the kinds of stories they deserve. We'll consider character, narrative arc, voice, humor, and writing strong themes (without being didactic!) Participants should bring work in progress for gentle and productive group critique. Picture books, chapter books and middle grade fiction will be emphasized, but writers of YA and non-fiction are also welcome. For anyone with work in progress.
Tricia Springstubb is the author of books for kids of all ages, most recently the middle grade novel Every Single Second (HarperCollins) and the fourth book in a chapter book series, Cody and the Rules of Life (Candlewick Press). She lives in Cleveland Heights.
