Introduction to Writing Books for Children and Young Adults with Author Hannah Goodman


Writing novels for children and young adults requires an understanding of both the business and craft of writing for this special audience. Authentic voice and dialogue as well as developing a unique style are all requirements…But how does a writer do that, exactly? In this one afternoon workshop, writers will walk away with a greater understanding of the market for children as well as the tools of the trade.
