2010 Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers

Five days. Fourteen students. One award-winning author.

Life changing experience.

If you write for children or teens, there is nothing better for your career than to take your not-yet-published book to the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Workshop. For less than the cost of most weekend writer's conferences, you get a FULL WEEK of intensive group critiques, discussions on all aspects of writing and publishing, and a chance to hear lectures and break-out sessions from some of the most talented people in the business.

There are eleven classes to choose from, on topics ranging from picture books to YA novels. Or you can sign up to attend the afternoon lectures only.

One thing I really love about WIFYR is how POSITIVE the environment is. At some writers conferences they make it sound as if getting published is like being struck by lightning. At this one they tell you that you CAN do it, and then they tell you HOW.

So check out their website. Sign up! Go! I hope to see you there!

  4. My first year I went to a morning workshop, and then the second year I went to the afternoon lectures only. Both times I learned SO much, and the people there were so nice. I just had to tell everyone about it!
