Young Writers: From Inspiration To Publication
Time & Location
About The Event
http://www.sandiegowriters.org/october-young-writers-jen-laffler/ Are you a young writer who dreams of getting published? A diverse world of publications and contests exists to showcase young writers just like you! This class will give you the tools you need to explore it safely and with confidence. Together, we will learn how writers create and refine their work — all the way from first-glimmer-of-inspiration to ready-for-publication. We will read a few examples of successful pieces, and see what we can learn from them. We will create a welcoming, supportive environment for young writers to share their own work, using the language and respectful culture of a read-and-critique group. We’ll talk about editing; how to create an effective Author’s Bio, how to keep a submissions list or spreadsheet; and the importance of embracing both success and rejection! You will leave this course with a wealth of writing resources, including respectable contests and publications (both local and global) that accept submissions from children. Previous writing experience is not necessary; a deep sense of curiosity about writing is! Sign up today!
