Many people think of writing for children and teens as “writing light.” It is not. The demands children make on books – the reading and re-reading – require care and excellence in creating the work. One of the greatest editors of children’s books, Ursula Nordstrom, said: “Only the best is good enough for our children.” This workshop aims at bringing out the best in each participant: finding their best stories and the right voice to tell it; creating characters kids can believe in – whether realistic of fantastical; understanding the different needs and abilities of children at various ages; satisfying and fueling young readers curiosity and passion for books; recognizing and respecting their young audience and learning how their work fits into the field of literature for young people. #TheCenteratMDC
