Emerging Writers Workshop: Children's Book Week Event: Writing for Children with Author Shutta Crum

Monday May 1, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm -- Westgate Branch: West Side Room

This event is intended for grade 6 - adult

Picture books and early chapter books may look simple, but writing them is hard work. In this workshop, Alex Kourvo and Bethany Neal will be joined by children’s book author Shutta Crum to discuss inspiration, the writing process, and how children’s books get published.

This is part of the monthly Emerging Writers Workshops, which offer support, learning, and advice for local authors. Each month, two weeks after the workshop, there is a meet-up where the instructors will read samples of your work and offer advice and assistance in a casual, supportive atmosphere.
