This Saturday, 14th May 2014 Writer-in-Residence Ken Spillman will be returning to PCWC to facilitate a workshop titled “Writing Fiction for Children”.
If you have an interest in writing for children Ken is the perfect facilitator. 2/3 of the 60+ books he has written are aimed at children with many of them translated into several different languages.
This workshop is specifically for emerging writers who are interested in writing children’s fiction. Ken will provide with a practical introduction as well as motivation for turning ideas in books. He will do this by providing you with a series of writing exercises designed not only to build you understanding of the writing process but your confidence, abilities and ideas as well.
Discussions led by Ken will lead to greater clarity about structures, character and plot, editing, and the various market sectors. Above all, participants will be inspired to develop their stories and encouraged to keep the process simple.
You are welcome to bring a story you’re working on or an idea you’ve had suitable for young adults.
The workshop will taking place at 1:30-4:30pm on Saturday, 14th May at the Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre.
There are a few places still available so you must apply soon to make sure you reserve your place.
Watch out for further notices on whether we will start accepting walk-ins.
For those already attending, good luck and have fun!
