Summer 2022 Writing Class

Imagine a Children’s Book: Part 3 (Virtual): What works, what doesn’t?

Course Description: Enter the world of children’s books by comparing books that work, those that don’t, and be inspired to work on your own story. How can the work of a celebrity book that doesn’t work lead to meaningful writing? Susie Wilde was the children’s book columnist for the Raleigh News and Observer for over 30 years. She unites concepts of writing and reviewing experience to aid participants in discussion and in their own writing. We will examine different concepts in shared books and turn these into prompt possibilities to support individual writer’s work . This class blends hands-on exploration of children’s books with opportunities to share your writing and ideas with fellow students. Students either need permission or have completed Parts 1 & 2.

When: Mondays, June 6, 13, 20, 27; July 7; Mondays, 7-9 pm

Who: Students who have permission or have completed Parts 1 & 2.
