Writing for Kids – The Next Step with Arts Escape

September 14 @ 10:00 am - October 19 @ 12:00 pm


Via Zoom

Are you ready to go deeper with your kid-lit writing? This workshop will help you get feedback on your work-in-progress from other writers who, like you, are devoted to young people’s literature. You’ll have the opportunity to workshop your piece (short story or novel) multiple times over the course of this six-week class so you can receive feedback, discuss your story, and make revisions. It will be held on Wednesdays, starting September 14 through October 19 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

We’ll focus on craft issues such as point of view, dialogue, setting, character development, and effective use of language to help you improve your work. Plus, we’ll talk about the revision process, analyze published short stories/novel excerpts, and swap book recommendations. This class is geared toward writing/editing middle grade and young adult fiction. (Middle grade is typically defined as intended for readers ages 8-12, and young adult as readers ages 13-18.)

Students should have at least one work-in-progress they’d like to receive feedback on.

Class size is limited to 8 students and requires a minimum of 4 students to run.

Students must register by Tuesday, September 13 to receive the Zoom link.
