Here's a description of the course:


Fiction or Nonfiction: What's Best for Your Story?  Shaping your idea and turning it into a book just right for your intended audience involves many choices. This workshop covers both fiction and nonfiction techniques and how to use them to create a book for children that is both fun and informative--just right for the child and just right for you. From picture books to chapter books, you will learn how to develop an idea into a framework for a book or article, choose a point of view, write lively prose, and conduct research. Special attention will be paid to organizing material; selling your story to trade, school, library, and magazine markets; and editing your work.

Enrollment deadline: Feb 28
