Fall 2014 Hugo House Class: Polishing Your Children’s Book Manuscript
Fall is a great time to pull out that manuscript draft and polish it up for submission to a publisher by the end of the year. My six-week class will help you meet your goal in a nurturing and generative workshop environment. All genres are welcome, from picture book to young adult novels. The class will run on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm at Hugo House, a writers cooperative on Capital Hill in Seattle, starting September 18. Read more…
You have a story in progress and maybe even a finished draft. How do you polish it for submission to a publisher? We’ll focus on strengthening story structure, dramatic tension, voice, and character development. Discover the right amount of detail and description to include for your target age group and the themes that will deepen your story and give it broader appeal. Students will submit one story in progress to the class and receive constructive feedback on their work from the instructor and classmates.
