How to Write for Young Readers: A Creative Literary Workshop for Adults

Monday, March 25, 2019 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell


Ever think about writing a children's book or a novel for young adults?   Wissahickon Valley Public Library invites you to join us for a creative literary workshop with a local author who has done just that...twice!

Eric Bell, author of two juvenile fiction novels, will offer a introductory workshop on how to write for young readers.

 YOU WILL learn:

  •  the differences in age categories, from picture books to young adult
  •  writing tips like three-act structure and character development
  •  common misconceptions about children’s publishing
  •  the difference between traditional and self-publishing
  •  AND how you (yes, you!) can see the world through a child’s eyes

 Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insight and inspiration and get your questions answered!  NOTE: This workshop is for aspiring adult authors, ages 18 to 118 only. (This is not a children's workshop).   There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested at


Eric Bell is an author of middle grade fiction, roughly intended for ages 9-12. He lives and writes in Ambler, Pennsylvania. His debut novel, ALAN COLE IS NOT A COWARD, is currently available from Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins wherever books are sold. A sequel, ALAN COLE DOESN’T DANCE, has been recently released and is eagerly awaiting your consumption!  You can find out more about Eric at
