Cashing In on Kid Lit: An Intro to Writing for Children

Saturday, August 3
10:45 am - 12:15 pm
St. Helen’s D

The youth literature market is broad, diverse, and ever changing. In this workshop. We’ll look at the market from birth to teens and discuss the training, preparation, professional expectations, and common career trajectory of an author who writes for kids. There will be plenty of time for discussion, so bring your questions!
