Saturday Sept 7th, 2013 - Young at Heart: Writing Fiction that Young Readers Will Love with Ruth Bennett (Stripes)
This class will focus on how to connect with readers in the 5-8 age group. We will cover story ideas, writing styles and trends in young fiction, as well as the tricky business of how to submit your work to publishers. There will be an opportunity to discuss your work, receive tips and feedback, and participate in writing exercises. Please submit a synopsis (single A4 page) and the first chapter of your story. Participants are welcome to submit their manuscripts to Stripes after the class.
Ruth Bennett is editor for Stripes, a children's publisher who specialize in bright and appealing books for young readers, from Holly Webb's best-selling animal stories to the lovable Dirty Bertie and the hilarious Ninja Meerkats.
