Join Lola M. Schaefer, author of more than 275 children’s books, as she coaches a small group of dedicated picture book writers in three Sunday sessions. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction for children ages 3-8 years-old, this is a three-part workshop you don’t want to miss. When you’re all alone writing away in your home or coffee shop, don’t you ever wish you had others as sounding boards? During these coaching sessions, that’s exactly what you’ll have. Not only will you be able to ask others for their input, but you will practice strategies for every stage of the writing process. Note*** There is an application process to be accepted into this program. You must be a member of SCBWI to participate. Space is limited.
