How to Write for Children and Young Adults

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

Ever think about writing a children's book or a novel for young adults?

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!

This workshop is for aspiring authors, ages 18 to 118! (It is not a workshop for kids or teens).  There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested at
