What does it mean to write for young readers? If you’re struggling to authentically portray diverse characters, plus identify solid mentor texts as a guide, this writing workshop is for you. Explore character, compassion and empathy by learning how to better incorporate authentic voices in your work by avoiding the pitfalls of cultural appropriation or crafting narratives using words and/or plot devices beyond the literacy level of your target audience. Rachel Werner will be the session presenter for this virtual event.
Those who attended Rachel Werner’s Mini Book Writing Bootcamp were provided with lots of essential information and those participating said that it exceeded expectations. We strongly encourage you not to miss THIS session. You don’t need to be a Forest Lodge Library patron, it won’t cost you any $ and you won’t need a library card. Just an interest in the subject!
