[Limit 25] Holly will edit and critique these pages and display them to the class as a way of revealing strengths and weaknesses in the material.
Additionally, she will lead the students in writing exercises and offer advice on such topics as creating strong titles and opening paragraphs, learning to self-edit, mastering proofreading, finding the right markets for manuscripts and knowing when and how to go into writing full-time.

Scrivener is full of features that can help you get more organized and find the things you need, saving you time and making it easier to get things done.
There will be lots of writing exercises, so come prepared to write like a hyperactive ferret. The children’s book industry is more competitive than ever, and working in it can be surprisingly rewarding.
We’ll explore picture books for young children and illustrated novels for older children, their differences and what works for both: structure, story, character, rules to follow and rules to break, the writing life, and the industry.
