The Seattle Public Library is hosting a series of FREE writing programs/workshops/ panels this fall. I’m teaching Writing the Picture Book on Monday, September 29 from 5:30-7:30 at the University Branch Library and again on Monday, October 20 from 5:30-7:30 at the Columbia Branch Library.
A few of the workshops for those writing for kids include:
- What’s So Funny? Writing Humor for Kids — Kim Baker
- Writing for Teens — Jennifer Longo, Kevin Emerson, Karen Finneyfrock
- Character Development — Rebecca Agiewich
- Voices Up: The Stories of Our Lives (short nonfiction, personal essays) — Ann Teplick
There are also workshops on short stories, poetry, and starting a novel which will help you get ready for National Novel Writing Month held in November.
The workshops are all free, but you need to register by calling: 206-386-4636. The workshops are generating a lot of interest, so if you want to attend, be sure to sign up soon.
