Writing for Children II: Fine Tuning Your Manuscript

Course Number: TEWS807N 

Writing a children's book is hard work, but you don't have to do it alone! Refining your manuscript will be a continuing process in this workshop. There will be tweaking, fine tuning, and yes, even joy as you watch your story take shape in a non-judgmental and quite friendly environment of like-minded writers. We recommend taking Writing for Children: Finding Your Voice (offered in early Spring and Summer) prior to this workshop, but it's not required.

July 25, August 1 and August 8, 2018
Wednesdays, 9:30 am - 11:30 am

4 CTLE or .4 CEU $225 (not offered for credit) 
Registration Deadline: 1/18
