Writing fiction for children and young adults
Children’s fiction has changed since most current adults were kids.
Join author Lois Peterson on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Port Moody Public Library for an overview of fiction for children and youth from birth to 18 years. This workshop offers an opportunity for writers to explore craft elements specific to writing for children and youth. Participants will also identify, share, and develop new and emerging story ideas and gain insights into effective marketing strategies.
Peterson has published four books for readers aged eight to 14 since 2008. Three more books are scheduled for publication in 2012. Peterson has worked with children, parents and teachers in libraries for more than 30 years. Her previous career included publishing creative, commercial and business writing for adults. Peterson (www.loispeterson.blog.com) is also a popular storyteller and writing instructor.
