The Summer Conference is already knocking my socks off, but now they've gone and added two new class/workshop opportunities:
STRONG EMOTIONS ON THE PAGE: A MASTER CLASS with Arthur Levine
In this workshop, renowned children’s book editor Arthur Levine helps you explore and discover what moves you, and teaches you how to get those experiences and feelings down on the page. A unique opportunity to deepen your writing skills and find your true voice. and
THE MIDDLE GRADE NOVEL: GROWING YOUR STORY with Linda Sue Park
A good novel is an organic whole: plot grows out of character choices, characters are rooted in setting. In this class, you’ll practice treating story as a cohesive whole rather than as separate units of technique. Participants will need to bring a printout of the first fifty pages of a middle-grade novel. No one teaches the often troublesome issues of plotting better than Newbery Medal winner, Linda Sue Park.
