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
Enrollment deadline: Feb 28
