Turning Your Life into a Young Adult/Middle Grade Novel with Nora Raleigh Baskin (Via Zoom)

Flannery O’Connor once said “Anyone who survived childhood has enough material to write for the rest of his life.” In this course participants will learn how to use their true life memories and tell the story they’ve always wanted to tell. We will learn the ways to successfully turn those memories into fiction, as well as the dos and don’ts, the pitfalls, and red flags for editors.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom (Saturday, June 22, 12:30-2:30 PM) and will be capped at 10 students. Please review the course policies page before registering for any classes. Please email ask@writerscenter.org with any questions.

All HVWC scholarship applications will be available on May 1 and will be due on May 15 for all summer/fall 2024 classes.

Nora Raleigh Baskin is the author of 15, soon to be 16 novels for middle grade and young adult authors, including Nine, Ten: A September 11 story (S&S).
