Join us on Jul 19, 2023 at the Safe Harbor Pilots Point Marina Clubhouse in Westbrook, Connecticut for this in person middle grade event organized by the The Connecticut River Valley NESCBWI Group: Are you working on a middle-grade novel and need help? In this all-day in-person workshop, Connecticut middle-grade authors Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo and Kimberly Behre Kenna will guide you as you learn techniques for crafting an engaging hook. Examples of successful opening lines, setting the scene, and creating multi-faceted characters with goals and stakes will be discussed and applied to your own revision process. Learn how to formulate a plan to take your work to the next level. Bring your MG novel’s first five to ten pages (double-spaced) for sharing/critique. Optional: Bring a draft of your query letter, synopsis, or outline to share. Go to the New England website and click on upcoming events to register.
