Many of us need the sharp eyes and generosity of other writers to further develop our projects. This manuscript workshop is intended to create a space for such writers of speculative fiction for children and young adults: chapter books through teen novels.
The focus of our sessions will be participants’ works-in-progress. Each week, short lectures will post, along with tools students can use to evaluate their manuscripts in regard to the particular focus of the brief lecture, for example: voice, setting/cultures, yearning in characters, etc. These tools can be used by writers just beginning new stories and by writers revising projects they’ve already developed. The central part of the workshop will be discussion on pages submitted by participants. Participants should be prepared to offer pages each week (up to 2500 words) along with constructive feedback on other classmates’ submissions.
Bring your sharp eye and generous heart.
