Wine and Design - Dilworth
Price: $100 A well-structured story creates room for a unique voice, and those two elements are what catch the attention of agents and editors. Children’s author Rebecca Petruck will teach a deceptively simple tool to “see” the entirety of your novel, then will plot two sample novels, one of them yours. The process is thought-provoking, interactive, and fun! Afterward, you’ll spend some time talking with Petruck about the path to publication in the children’s market and have an extended Q&A for you to pick her brain. This workshop is inspiring for both beginning and more experienced writers.
