Writing for Young Readers with Nora Raleigh Baskin via Zoom

Writing for Young Readers Is NOT A Genre
(in fact, it’s the best school for learning to write)

In this workshop there will be a short introduction into several different writing skills such as, fact into fiction, POV, voice, theme, dialogue, and language after which students will write for 10-minutes based on the topic. Listening and responding to one another is where the organic learning happens. It can be quite magical.
Writing cannot truly be “taught” it needs to be written and shared.

This is a one-day Master Class taught on Zoom and capped at 12 students and is $124.
